LAN connectivity issues

Qbert0
Newbie in training trying to get a bum network back online.

Small school network running one server 2003.
Setup as a DC, file/printer, VPN, and DNS.
Also features one modem/router, two 24-port switches, about 30 workstations and a few printers.

Was setup with Dual homed Nics but i dissabled one due to not being able to get them working.

Everything is static ip, except tcp/ip set to auto.

1.Can only logon to server and teacher workstation. all other w/s state "no domain setup for user". Both Admin and Users get this reply.
2.Can ping teacher w/s from server but has 75% fail... Teacher cannot ping server.
3.Cannot ping any other w/s. only self and router
3.Teacher can remote access server but server cannot remote to any other computer.
4.Tracert from server to teach gets hung at router/switch.
5.All Nics and patch cables seem to be ok, new switches and modem.
6.Server and teach have internet.

    Ok well when you say
    "Everything is static ip, except tcp/ip set to auto."
    Whats auto mean?

    If everything is static, you mean even the workstations are static IP assignement?

    I am assuming your DNS/DS Windows 2003 server address is 192.168.0.1.

    You will first need to look in the DNS server config on the server and make sure their are name record entries and reverse entries for your PC's in the network. This usually happens automatically if you use DHCP to assign addresses, but check to be sure.

    Their should also a configuration in DNS to tell it what IP address to foward unsuccessful lookups to if they fail. I can't remember exactly where but I'm pretty confident that its under options for the DNS server.

    Also make sure the the first DNS entry on the servers network card is the servers IP(192.168.0.1) and then the second entry is the DNS server of your provider.

    you miss the fact that schools have local, state and federal regulations that they must comply with, regardless of what charter they have. Even training institutions [glorified diploma mills] that call themselves "schools" have regulations they must comply with.

    Here's the paradigm...cryto guys use it

    "you can only find it if you already know where it is".
