  • Hi,

    Just thought I'd let you know I received this PC from ebuyer on Saturday and installed WHS on it and all went well ( I upgraded the ram to 1GB and am still waiting for an additional 250gb drive) as it is the cheapest pre-built PC I could find.

    I thought it may be useful for those wanting to take the beta plunge but without available equipment to repurpose.

  • Have you installed the Connector software on the client PCs?

    Are they Windows XP Pro x64?

  • i cant install the client software, since it wont even connect. The client pcs are windowsxp pro on both of them. I have checked windows update for any type of driver updates, for both server and client and I get nothing. so im kinda stuck. I have configured the WHS and made client accounts and everything, but I cant connect to it, and try the backups and the remote connections goodies.

  • Do you have a router? What model is it?

    From the server, run  "ipconfig /all" to work out what IP address it has.
