Mandriva Directory Server On Debian Etch - Page 7

20 The Client Side

I've tested this with Windows XP Pro SP2 - but it should also work with other Windows versions.

  • Be sure that no other DHCP server than the one on the server is running
  • Start Windows and log in as local administrator
  • Configure your network connection to use DHCP
  • Right click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
  • Switch to the tab "Computer Name" and click on "Change"
  • Insert a desired computer name, mark the radio button "Domain" and enter "EXAMPLE" (without the quotes!)
  • Click on "OK" to take the changes effect
  • A few moments later you'll be asked for a username and password. Use the domain administrator account that you created at step 5.2 (e.g.: Username "Administrator" with the password "howtoforge") and click on "OK"
  • If all went ok, you'll get a welcome message
  • Restart the system
  • When the system is up again, log in with the domain administrator account that you created at step 5.2 (e.g.: Username "Administrator" with the password "howtoforge"). Be sure that you select the domain from the drop down menu!
  • Click on "Start" and afterwards on "execute". Enter "gpedit.msc" and click on "OK".
  • Browse to the Internet Explorer settings and activate "proxy settings per computer."

  • Now open the Internet Explorer, click on "Extras" and afterwards on "Internet Options". Edit the proxy settings as shown on the screenshot below.

  • Log out and in again with the domain user account that you configured at step 19.4 (e.g.: Username "olli" with the password "howtoforge"). Be sure that you select the domain from the drop down menu! Domain users won't be able to change the proxy settings.
