How to add a new ip to your IIS Server

Please note: You must add another ip address to your network card for you to be able to use it. This guide will help you get Internet Information Services work with that ip and not display the error message "The Network Cannot be reached". This message will only appear when you stop the website and try to start it again after making the ip change.

RESOLUTION

loadTOCNode(1, 'resolution');

To install Microsoft Windows support tools:

loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');

1. Insert the Windows Server 2003 CD in the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM
drive.
2. When the CD opens, click Perform Additional
Tasks
.
3. Click Browse this CD.
4. Double-click Support.
5. Double-click Tools.
6. Double-click SUPTOOLS.MSI.
7. Click Next, type your information in the
Name and Organization boxes, click
Next, and then click Next on the following
screen.
8. Click Next again to start the
installation.
9. Click Finish.

To add an IP address to the IP inclusion list:

loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');

1. Click Start, and then click
Run.
2. Type cmd, and then click
OK to open a command prompt.
3. Type the following, where
xxx.xxx.x.x is the IP address you want to add:

httpcfg set iplisten -i
xxx.xxx.x.x

When this succeeds, Httpcfg returns the following:

HttpSetServiceConfiguration completed with
0

To view additional status codes, see the Httpcfg help.

4. After the IP address is added, use the following command to
list it:

httpcfg query iplisten

Httpcfg returns the following:

IP :xxx.xxx.x.x

Important The IP inclusion list is read during startup of the HTTP service.
If you change the list, you must restart the service.

Note
The HTTP service and the HTTP SSL service are different services. The
HTTP service does not appear in the services list and must be restarted
at a command prompt. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run,
and then type cmd to open a command prompt. At the
command prompt, type net stop http /y and press ENTER.
This stops the HTTP Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) service and the World Wide Web
publishing services because they are dependent on the HTTP service.
2. To start the HTTP service, type net start
w3svc
at the command prompt. This starts the HTTP SSL service and
the HTTP service.

After you add IP addresses to the IP inclusion list, you must
add each IP address that is used by a Web site. If you bind a Web site to an IP
address that is not on the list, the Web site does not start.

Useful Resources when configuring or working with SBS 2003

Here is a list of useful websites when it came down to getting something to work on my SBS network. Please feel free to le me know if you know of any other good resources out there. Thank you!

How to configure your Client Computer

Configure the Client Computers
To use File Services for Macintosh to share folders on the server with the client computers, configure the client computers as follows:
•    Install Microsoft User Authentication Module (UAM) on the client computers.
•    Enable AppleTalk on the client computers.
•    Configure AppleTalk settings on the client computers.

By default, the server running Services for Macintosh requires authentication using Microsoft UAM. But when a Macintosh computer tries to connect to a resource on the network, it does not use UAM. The result is this error message: “The user authentication method required by the server cannot be found.” To avoid this problem, install UAM on the Macintosh computers.
 To install Microsoft UAM on Macintosh computers
1.    Go to the Microsoft mactopia Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=44593).
2.    Download UAM for OS X 10.1 or later.
3.    Open the MSUAM_for_X folder and run Install MSUAM for X.3 pkg.
 To enable AppleTalk on a client computer
1.    From the Apple menu on the client computer, select System Preferences.
2.    Click the Network icon.
3.    In the Show box, click Built-in Ethernet, and then click Configure.
4.    Click the AppleTalk tab, and then select the Make AppleTalk Active check box.
5.    Click Apply Now, and then close System Preferences.
 To configure AppleTalk settings on a client computer
1.    On the client computer, open Macintosh HD.
2.    Double-click Applications, and then double-click Utilities.
3.    Double-click Directory Access.
4.    Click the lock to make changes.
5.    Enter the user name and password for the user of that client computer.
6.    Clear the Active Directory and SMB check boxes.
7.    Select the AppleTalk check box.
8.    Click Apply, and then quit Directory Access.

 To access shared folders on the server
1.    On the client computer, open Finder by clicking the Finder icon in the Dock.
2.    From the title bar, click Go, and then click Connect to Server.
3.    In the Server Address box, type afp://ServerName, where ServerName is the NetBIOS name of the server. In my particular case, you'll have to use the ip address of the server which is 192.168.0.1
4.    Click Connect.
5.    Enter the domain user name and password to connect to the server.
6.    Select the volume(s) you want to mount, and then click OK.
7.    The volume(s) mount on the desktop.
