    C:\Windows>netsh interface ipv4 show interface

    Idx  Met   MTU   State        Name
    ---  ---  -----  -----------  -------------------
      2   10   1500  connected    Local Area Connection
      1   50 4294967295  connected    Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1

    c:\Windows>netsh interface ipv4 set address name="2" source=static
    address=192.168.X.X  mask=255.255.255.0 gateway=192.168.X.1

    c:\Windows>netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name="2" address=192.168.X.1  index=1

    c:\Windows>netsh winhttp set proxy 192.168.X.1:8080

    There is no options let me setting the proxy username and proxy password.

    C:\Windows>netsh winhttp show proxy

    Current WinHTTP proxy settings:

  • This is not a Server Core specific problem.

     

    This is a known problem and is described in Microsoft KnowledgeBase article 921471.

    Possible workarounds described in the Article include disabling basic authentication and activating the product using the phone.

  • Hi,

     

    If you have a router and it is configured to provide IP addresses via DHCP, it should just work.
