Windows 2003 and IIS Page

Let me start by saying, I am NOT any kind of network admin, I have a couple friends that bail me out if I have troubles. Over the past couple of years, I have learned a thing or two about Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6. This page probably will not help network admins, but it may help some novices with problems they may be having. I will post the fixes on problems that I have. My network is in my home, and only my wife and I are using it. That being said, I hope some of the information here may help you.

For reference, here are the components of my network:

  1. Windows Server 2003 SP2 - AMD K7 700 - Active Directory Domain Controller, Web Server, E-Mail Server
  2. Windows Server 2003 - AMD Athlon XP 2600+ - Development Server
  3. Windows Server 2003 - Intel Pentium II 550 - Print Server
  4. Windows XP Pro SP1 - AMD Athlon XP 2100+ - My machine - In domain
  5. Windows XP Pro SP2 - AMD Athlon XP 2200+ - My wifes machine - not in domain
    Routers and Modems
  1. NetGear router - with active firewall
  2. Mororola SurfBoard SB4200 Cable Modem
