Hi all,

I wish to have a NT machine as a gateway to have ability to route 3 different kind of ip.

For example my internal network 172.16.x.x
            my DMZ network 192.168.0.x
            my external ip 202.188.x.x

How I can make my internal network be able to go to internet using This NT machine gateway and my router(202.188.x.x) ??

How the NT machine can help in order to do this ??

All would appreciate if any one of you could give me refference site for this.

Thanks......   :)

If you want to use one NT machine to give you connectivity from Internal to two outside networks, then you need to have 3 NICs in the machine and TCP/IP installed.

1. First NIC should be connected to Internal Network having tha IP address from the Internal Network
  e.g 172.16.x.z

2. The second NIC should have connectivity to the network
  192.168.0.x and an IP address from that network

3. The third NIC should have connectivity to the 202.188.x.x network and an IP address from the same network

From the TCP/IP properties enable IP/Forwarding.

Then add permanent routes from the command prompt for the two networks, eg:

route add -p 192.168.0.0 mask <your net mask> <here add the IP address given on NT to NIC 2> metric 1

Similarly add routes for the 202.188.x.x network.

Then from the clients you can configure the NT machine as thge default gateway in TCP/IP properties.

It should work.

1.  yes I have 3 NIC.  Configure with NIC-1 ip 172.16.x.x  NIC-2 192.168.0.x NIC-3 202.188.x.x

I dun know whether u can understand my drawing or not  :)

(202.188.a.b) (202.188.a.c)    (172.16.a.c)  
Router ----------------NT Maching-------------172.16.a.b
                       (192.168.a.c)    Internal Network
                            |              
                            |
                            |
                            |
                        192.168.a.b.
                           DMZ

I want 172.16.a.b be able to ping router (202.188.a.b)  and can go to internet from router.  :)

What's the use of adding static routes and turning IP forwarding on with those private IP addresses, even if the packet gets out to the internet the reply won't come back again as nobody on Internet has a route to 172.16.0.0 or 192.168.x.0 networks.

If it's NT4 you will have to install proxy server (MS proxy 2 or winproxy or nat32) on the server. If it's win2k server you can use inbuilt NAT. If win2k PRO then you can use ICS but this does not allow for a DMZ. Or buy a software firewall and install it on the server but then it can't be usedd as a server any more.

What's the router, you may be able to do NAT and port forwarding on that rather than with the server.

If your running Windows NT you need to have RRAS installed to be able to route. If your running 2K it will come with it. I agree with Andy, you will need to put something in place to NAT your IP addresses.

I have my NT server 4 service pack 5

Can I just add route using "route" command at command line.
Why should I install RIP ??

Should I install routig and remote access service (RRAS) ??  If I am not wrong RIP is include in this service..

Does anyone know whether RRAS can provide NAT or not ??

Windows 2000 provide NAT capability or not ??

Windows NT has no NAT capabilities. This was a function of Windows 2K only. Yes, you can add static routes if you want but using RIP would probably be better. It just depends on how much routing you intend on doing.
