I'm running MAC OS X 10.6.7
How to configure Windows Server 2008 basic roles to work in a Local only environment( 1 server- 1 client)?By Sengrath
OK so here it goes:I have Virtual PC installed with two machines: 1 server 2008 , and one Vista.I set them up to have static IPs from on the same sub network(192.168.0.xxx), also I gave them the same domain (don't know how hat helps ..but i did it.If I ping each other they respond OK. Now what I need is for the serve 2008 Machine to provide to the vista client some services( just for test..nothing fancy):-i need to configure a domain( not sure if already did that-i need to configure active directory( to have 1 admin account , 1 user, 1 computer, 1 server)- i need to have a webhost on the server so that the client can go to iexplorer and access a simple web page- i need to have a ftp ( I installed FTP for win server 2008 but not sure I configured ok) with 1 file to be accessed from the client.- i need to have an exchange server with 2 mail accounts.- and last I need to be able to access the server remotely from the client.
I am pretty sure some of the stuff is really easy( still I do not know how:D) and that some of the stuff is tricky .Thank you for your answers,Theo
My PC is not reachable on local LAN (workgroup) after changing computer name, i then renamed back to the original name, still not reachable.
I tried to ping everybody and it is successful, but other can't ping me or access my shared folders.
What do you suggest in that case?
I'm thinking about getting a console, but it's insanely hard to pick between the three. Here's what I think of each:
XBOX 360: Has good exclusives, uses achievements which are also supported by PC (Games for Windows Live). I already have a LIVE account so it would be great if I wanted all of my games to be in one place. Obvious minus here is the risk of a RROD, and the trouble of having to pay for LIVE GOLD in order to play multiplayer.
PS3: Unbelievably awesome exclusives, yet fairly expensive games in general (due to Blu-Ray obviously). A good step forward since I already own a PS2, also has free multiplayer unlike the 360 and (IMO) the controllers are more durable and better designed. Downsides here - FAT models overheat, Slim models aren't that cheap (if I want to go for a big HDD).
Wii: Nothing to do with the PS3 or 360, a few good exclusives, unique control system and cheap too. Good for sports, but few play multiplayer on shooters and racers and most games get boring after being completed once. Some other drawbacks are the lack of achievements and the lack of true Full HD output (I know some third party cables claim they can do this, but all it is is a bunch of upscaling)...
So that's what I think of the three, all in all. Now I'm ready to hear YOUR opinion! Have something good to say about a console? Say it. Have something bad to say about a console? Say it. I'll average out the opinions and pick my console based on the replies.
