Occasionally network administrators report difficulty getting Microsoft Windows clients to interoperate
correctly with Samba servers. It seems that some folks just cannot accept the fact that the right way
to configure an MS Windows network client is precisely as one would do when using MS Windows NT4 or 200x
servers. Yet there is repetitious need to provide detailed Windows client configuration instructions.
</p><p>
<a class="indexterm" name="id346020"></a>
<a class="indexterm" name="id346028"></a>
The purpose of this chapter is to graphically illustrate MS Windows client configuration for the most common
critical aspects of such configuration. An experienced network administrator will not be interested in the
details of this chapter.

	The builder of a house must ensure that all construction takes place on a firm foundation.
	The same is true for the builder of a TCP/IP-based networking system. Fundamental network configuration problems
	will plague all network users until they are resolved.

	MS Windows workstations and servers can be configured either with fixed
	IP addresses or via DHCP. The examples that follow demonstrate the use of DHCP
	and make only passing reference to those situations where fixed IP configuration
	settings can be effected.
