Chapter 4: Installing and Configuring Basic Network Protocols

Windows 2000 includes support for the same network protocols you're accustomed to in Windows NT 4.0. Some of these protocols, like TCP/IP, have assumed new importance. Others, like NetBIOS, are being quietly rolled out to pasture. However, the majority (including DLC and AppleTalk) survive relatively unchanged.

The Windows 2000 network infrastructure exam objectives require you to know how to install, configure, and troubleshoot network protocols. However, the exam itself focuses heavily on two protocols: TCP/IP and the NetWarecompatible NWLink. Accordingly, that's what this chapter will focus on. By the time you finish this chapter, you'll know how to install any network protocol Windows 2000 supports, and you'll know how to set basic configuration parameters for TCP/IP and NWLink. You'll also learn how to configure the bindings that attach protocols to particular NICs. Finally, you'll learn how to troubleshoot TCP/IP and NWLink problems.

Installing Network Protocols

Windows 2000 supports a wide range of network protocols, both in the set provided with Windows 2000 itself and from third-party vendors. In brief, any vendor who wants to write an NDIS-compatible driver can do so; in theory, any network protocol could potentially have a Windows 2000 version. In practice, Microsoft ships protocol stacks for TCP/IP, NetBEUI, Novell's IPX/SPX (which Microsoft calls NWLink), AppleTalk, and DLC. You install or remove all of these protocols using the same interface; once you actually install the protocol, you will still have to configure it. Since it's fairly simple, you will learn how to install NWLink first. Once that's done, you'll move on to the more complicated process of installing and configuring TCP/IP.

Installation Basics

You install network protocols through the Local Area Network Connection Properties dialog box, which lists all of the known protocols on your Windows 2000 machine. Protocols marked with a check indicate that they're bound to the adapter whose properties you're inspecting. Figure 4.1 shows an example of what this dialog box might look like on your machine.

Figure 4.1 The Local Area Connection Properties dialog box shows you which protocols are already installed....

Installing and Configuring NWLink

...Notice that NWLink isn't shown in Figure 4.1; that's okay because we're about to install it by following the instructions in Exercise 4.1.

Microsoft Exam Objective

Install, configure, and troubleshoot network protocols.
  • Install the NWLink protocol.

Exercise 4.1

Installing NWLink

Follow these steps to install NWLink:

  1. Open the Network and Dial-Up Connections folder (Start -> Settings -> Network and Dial-Up Connections).

  2. Right-click the Local Area Connection icon and choose the Properties command. The Local Area Connection Properties dialog box appears, as shown earlier in Figure 4.1.

  3. Click the Install button. The Select Network Component Type dialog box appears. Select Protocol and click the Add button.

  4. The Select Network Protocol dialog box appears. Choose "NWLink IPX/SPX-Compatible Transport Protocol," then click the OK button.

  5. If prompted, insert your Windows 2000 CD and click OK.

  6. Click the Close button in the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.

You may notice something missing from the above instructions: They don't say anything about rebooting. That's because one of the biggest improvements in Windows 2000 is that you can now install or remove network protocols usually without rebooting! That's good, because when you install NWLink you actually get two protocols: NWLink and NWLink NetBIOS. NWLink NetBIOS allows NWLink traffic to be encapsulated inside NetBIOS traffic. In other words, you can send NWLink traffic between machines running NetBIOS or between a Windows machine running NWLink and a NetWare server running Novell's NetBIOS implementation.

Configuring NWLink is very straightforward. Like NetBEUI, it's really not designed to be configured, so there aren't very many settings you can change. When you open the NWLink properties dialog box, you'll see the mostly empty dialog box shown in Figure 4.2. Its controls do the following:

  • The Internal Network Number field lets you designate a network number (roughly equivalent to a TCP/IP network address) for this NIC. IPX and SPX use network numbers to route traffic for particular services directly to the machines that host them instead of depending on the Service Advertising Protocol (SAP).

  • The Adapter group controls what types of network data frames your adapter recognizes as containing NWLink-compatible data. There are four separate and incompatible frame types: Ethernet 802.2 (NetWare 4.x), Ethernet 802.3 (NetWare 3.x), Ethernet II, and Ethernet SNAP. Normally you'll want to use the Auto frame type detection radio button, since it lets the NWLink stack decipher the frame types for you. Choosing the wrong frame type means that you won't be able to communicate with other machines. If necessary (for example, if Windows 2000 misidentifies the frame type), you can tell NWLink that a particular network number is using a particular frame type by selecting the Manual frame type detection radio button and using the Add button to specify the desired frame type and network number.
Figure 4.2 The NWLink Properties dialog box...

Installing and Configuring TCP/IP ...TCP/IP is normally installed as part of the Windows 2000 setup process. This is no accident, since Microsoft would much rather have all its Windows 2000 customers use TCP/IP than NetBIOS. If you need to install TCP/IP manually, you still can. The process for installing it is very similar to the process required to install NWLink, as you can see in Exercise 4.2.

Microsoft Exam Objective

Install, configure, and troubleshoot network protocols.
  • Install and configure TCP/IP.

Exercise 4.2
Installing TCP/IP

Follow these steps to install the TCP/IP protocol:

  1. Open the Network and Dial-Up Connections folder (Start > Settings > Network and Dial-Up Connections).

  2. Right-click the Local Area Connection icon and choose the Properties command. The Local Area Connection Properties dialog box appears, as shown earlier in Figure 4.1.

  3. Click the Install button. The Select Network Component Type dialog box appears. Select Protocol and click the Add button.

  4. The Select Network Protocol dialog box appears. Choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click the OK button.

  5. If prompted, insert your Windows 2000 CD and click OK.

  6. Click the Close button in the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.

When you install TCP/IP, it defaults to using DHCP for automatic configuration. Think back to Chapter 2 and the "Obtain an IP address automatically" button. If you want to use DHCP for automatic configuration you certainly can, but it's always useful to know how to manually configure a TCP/IP connection (especially since Microsoft will be asking you to prove you know how to as part of the exam!). Now you'll see what that configuration process entails.

Configuring Basic TCP/IP Settings

If you've bought into the rap that TCP/IP is convoluted and difficult to configure, Windows 2000's basic TCP/IP properties dialog box may surprise you. TCP/IP actually requires only two pieces of information to function: the IP...

    Don't buy this book...

    Don't buy this book 'cause it has a deffective CD and the publisher has yet to make a working version. They said they found out about it after it has been distributed. You have to send them your old CD including the receipt before they send you the new CD as soon as it's available. Who know when...

    Covers just about everything for the test.

    This is probably the best book for this test. I read 3 books (Osborne, Macmillan) and this one covered the most of the test scenarios. Although the other books did cover more case study type material, I would rather know all the material and put it together for a case study instead of having the case study and not knowing the material which is how I felt with the other 216 books. Still, to pass this test you need to understand how things work and why they work that way, not just because the books say do this and do that. This test is not as hard as everyone says it is if you gather all the information you can before taking the test.
