My client can't see my server.....

October 2, 2010 at 08:43:40
Specs: windows server 2003 R2
I have just installed server 2003 R2 and the AD has been installed as well. I also have created a user account. I have also installed DNS I think this is where my problem is. The client PC doesn't recognize the server, I keep getting and error. This is my first time doing this so I'm sure that I'm missing something.

First of all, you have to make sure, that the connection between server and client pc is working and configure properly.
Therefore, you have to make sure, that both machines are in the same subnet.
ipconfig /all
on both machines will show the ip settings.

Can you ping the servers ip address from the client pc?

Hi, Paulsep
I can ping from the client to the server and server to client. Also, both are on the same subnet mask. Do you think it might be my DNS setup this is my first time doing this , I think that is that issue . This is the error I'm getting- 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR- DNS does not exist.

Thanks for your help

Seems to be so.
What DNS server is configured at the client PC?

I don't really know how do I find that information, can you assist. Also, do I need to configure the DNS on my server in a certain way. The reason for this question is I'm not sure if I configured it correctly. Is there any tutorials that you know of that can guide me through this process. If so can you send me a link.

1. You can figure out the DNS server, configured at the client pc by clicking Start / Run.
Type in CMD and click ok.
Then type in
ipconfig /all
and search the DNS server entry.

2. Yes, you have to configure the DNS server at the Microsoft Server 2003 to run the Active Directory correctly.

3. You have to learn the basics of networking, before you run and configure a server, no matter what server you'll run (Microsoft, Linux, Novell or whatever).
You also have to learn using google for that. This helps you to help yourself in basic questions.

I found the DNS server IP it is 65.32.5.111 it looks like a wild card mask. So the client does have this informaition. Oh I know a little about networking I'm just very new to windows server. sorry for my lack of knowledge in this area paulsep , you have been a great help.

The ip address 65.32.5.111 is a public ip.
Does this fit the ip address range in your local area network?
I don't thing so.

nanotechsolutions get a MS training book or one of the many books available concerning 2003 server.

Otherwise your training/experience will be shot full of holes of what you don't know how to do properly. Learning server administration is not a "feel your way" kind of learning.
