Configuring a new router to win -2003 dhcp server
Hi, guys how are you doing?
I am working in a small company as network administrator. When I joined the company everything was configured by a former network administrator. Right now, I have some difficulties configuring a new Router in DHCP server. Let me explain it in detail.
Well, in this company there were not internet connections until today but now the administration of the company bought a static DNS from ISP provider and told me to configure it to the DHCP server so that all DHCP clients gonna have an internet connection because soon we will have a web application. My problem is the DHCP server was not configured properly from the beginning because the IP Address is (192.168.0.1) should be reserved to the gate way. Take a look what configuration I have so far.
IP Address = 192.168.0.1
Sub net = 255.255.255.0
Gate way = no
DNS = 192.168.0.1
The Address pool is starting from 192.168.0.20 -192.168.0.254
My question is:-
1. Can I reserve from the pooling address example (192.168.0.254) in the DHCP server so that I will give this address to the Router?
2. Is it possible to have an IP Address from non- pooling address such as (192.168.0.2-192.168.0.19) for the Router?
3. During the configuration of the Router, could I add the static address to the Router or is it enough to add to the forwarders?
I hope you understand what I am asking for
Please guys i need help?
