Acer Aspire EasyStore will not install RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, I purchased this a while ago but I have not been able to connect to it to run the initial setup.  I am able to ping it on the local ip address, but when I try to ping using the domain name (AspireHome) it is going out to my ISP's DNS server but then ends up pinging back to my link local ipv6 address (::1:) on my laptop.  I don't have any other computer to try to connect to it with.  I configured my router with a dhcp reservation of the address it assigned it after booting up the server.  I can access the servers start page when browsing to its local ip address in a web browser.  Also, when running the install cd (both the one supplied by acer and the iso file from microsoft) it can find the server but then the install fails as soon as it finds it.  I am thinking that it has to do with the domain name (AspireHome) resolving back to my ipv6 link local address (::1:) but I have no idea how to fix that.
