Updated: January 21, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
To configure TCP/IP for dynamic addressing
Open Network Connections.
Right-click the network connection that you want to configure, and then click Properties.
On the General tab (for a local area connection) or the Networking tab (for all other connections), click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.
Click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group or the Network Configuration Operators group on the local computer. For more information, see Default local groups and Default groups.
To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.
These instructions are only required if a static TCP/IP configuration was previously used. By default, computers running Windows Server 2003 operating systems attempt to obtain the TCP/IP configuration from a DHCP server on your network.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
