Build Your Own Home Server: Introduction Page 5

By M.A. Dockter of PCMechanic

You will now be ready to log in. After you log-in, you'll need to create a new host name. Chose any name you want followed by any domain you want, including ods.og, which is what I used. After you've done so, add the hose name. Then, you've got all the information you needed to fill in boxes 1, 2, and 3. What you need to fill in, is the following:

  1. nameyouchose.ods.org

  2. User name you registered with

  3. Password that corresponds with that user name

Now that you've done that, click the "Start" button in order to tell the ODS servers that the IP you're on, will know be known as nameyouchose.ods.org. Now, click on the File pull-down menu at the top, and select the "Options" option. You should get a window like the one shown below, minus the pink circles.

You want to have all three those boxes checked to so that WinIP will start up as soon as Windows starts. And, so that when is starts up, it will go to the system try, which is when all the icons are called down by the time in the lower right corner of your screen.
