    Maybe this is a silly question but how does one set up an internet connection with Virtual PC? I have installed Win 98SE and Win Server 2003 on it...and I cant get them on the internet. Or I am guessing this cant be done at all? :rolleyes: Ok call me really stupid, but just wanted to know if it is at all possible. If not then no worries. Tell you what tho the whole Win Server thing is mind boggling, I dont know how some of you guys got your heads round it, but I dont even know where to start, any tips? thanks. :biggrin

    OK - this is a silly answer - mostly because I don't know Virtual PC at all. :biggrin

    But if it is a *true* virtual system there should be no change from the original OS!

    Getting the VPC's to see the internet is really straight forward, or at least it should be.

    When you set up the VPC's how did you tell them to configure networking? If memory recalls you have three setings (four if you include no network adapter), Host only, Bridged (or through the host), or direct through the hosts physical NIC. For now I'd suggest that you go for the direct option.

    When you say that you can't get them to connect to the internet what screen is displayed if you open up IE? If you have given the server a static IP address then this is where things can get complicated, so simply for now let it have a DHCP assigned one, in much the same way as your physical PC get's its address from your Router / modem.

    When working with Server 2003 try to think of it as simply an XP workstation, and configure things as you would on one. At least for now anyway.
