ok guys and gals i have now got hold of a server to play around on, its running win nt4 server. to start with i want to get the hardware connected up right and then sort out the software configuration, so at the moment i want to get one base unit connected and working. i have the server a 4 port router connected to adsl and a pc base unit. the server has a nic installed and i have connected that to the router which also has the base unit connected. first question is that correct? i am now of to scour the net for info on setting up server nt.
