I am working on configuring a physical Windows Server 2008 R2 box.
I have enabled AD/DNS but one of the issues I have is getting connected to the network so I can surf the internet etc.
I have been given a static IP, default gateway, set the FQDN (not related to the operation of the network), and set these values in IPV4 on the one physical NIC. DNS server I have left blank as that will be the local server. I have set the IP of the local server in the DNS tab (http://www.walkernews.net/wp-content/uploads/2007/06/vista-dns-setting.jpg that tab).
Despite this, the internet does not work and always has the exclamation mark on the network icon to the system tray.
Also, can I uncheck IPV6? How do I know if I need this checked or not?
