Q

Why can't I ping the server or access Internet on Win2000AS?

I installed Windows 2000 Advanced Server. I can access my Windows 98 client, i.e. the shared resources, D:, etc., but I'm unable to ping the server. I also cannot distribute the Internet.
If you cannot ping your server or access the Internet, you may not have the TCP/IP protocol installed or configured correctly. If the protocol is not installed, use the Windows installation CD to add it through the network control panel applet. Once installed, use the ipconfig /all command to ensure that you have a valid IP address, subnet mask and default gateway.
