  2. Highlight TCP/IP and click Properties to open the TCP/IP properties menu.
  3. Click on the tab labeled IP Address.

CProxy Server: TCP/IP Configuration - NT

  1. Enter the IP Address assigned to this workstation in the IP Address field - e.g. 192.168.0.1
  2. Enter a subnet mask in the field labeled Subnet Mask - e.g. 255.255.255.0
  3. Leave the default gateway field blank.
  4. Press OK to complete configuration. You must restart the workstation for the protocol changes to take place.

Testing TCP/IP Communication
When TCP/IP has been installed on two or more workstations, it can be tested by running a MSDOS command prompt, entering PING 192.168.0.2 followed by the return key.

If TCP/IP has been installed correctly, a ping reply like the one shown below will be displayed four times on the screen.
