Setup Cable Modem on Windows NT Server

By charles ·
I am trying to setup my cable modem on Windows NT Server 4.0. So far I haven't been able to connect. I think it is because of the TCP/IP configuration. Any one can point me in the right direction?

Some details: I have two network cards on the server. One for the LAN and one for the cable modem. I am using DHCP, which forces static IP addresses for the network cards. The problem is that my server provider requires that the IP is allocated dynamically (no fixed Ip address). What would the TCP/IP configuration for the NIC connected to the cable (i.e. IP Address, Subnet, Default Gateway).

Thanks for the help.

Charles

Your carrier will give you the information required for your WAN side nic card. There are some services that require a specific loging for their network, (they will provide client software), some that require the modem be configured with your machine name, and still others that use the MAC address on your machine for security.

Call the ISP and just ask them for the information. Just don't tell them "Server" or "My other NIC card" because they normally will not support you in thos situations.

Good Luck.

My solution for Rogers @Home.

Cablemodem NIC, TCP/IP with DHCP.
LAN NIC, TCP/IP, static IP. (192.169.0.1, netmask 255.255.255.0).

Goto Network Properties-> Bindings. Show bindings for 'all adaptors'. Locate your Cablemodem NIC and make sure only TCP/IP is enabled, if you have WINS client (TCP), disable it.

I assume you are trying to create a gateway for clients to the net. Make sure you install Proxy Server as well. For your clients, make their Default Gateway 192.168.0.1 (The IP ofyou LAN NIC in the server)Their IP addresses should start at 192.168.0.2, then next client would be 192.168.0.3, and so on.

Install your Cablemodem NIC first, and when you add TCP/IP it'll ask if you wanna use DHCP, say yes.

Mine works, exceptfor a small problem with the Computer Browser Service. Good Luck.

BTW, do noy use DHCP Server on your system to assign Static IPs to clients. Just assign them yourself.

The ISP have no idea. They can only support single user systems. They don't want to know about servers.
