Hi there,

We have two W2Y Servers and we are going to put the one at another site. What must I do so that this network knows not to look and waste time on this network, and to go to that network. We want to use VPN to connect the two. Both are DHCP/DNS server's and the second one will be there for backup on an other location.

Any help will be appreciated,

Thank you

Just pout each one on diffrent subnets.

put one on
the other one on

That way they won't be able to see each other and boradcasts won't reach between them.

But if I put them on diffrent subnets, how would, say network "A" now to go to network "B" for the info.

If you change the subnet neither of them will see each other on the network and can't comunicate.

Am I right? or am I sitting the pot mis.

Thank you

You need to put a router between the networks so you can route traffic. Or use extra NIC in both servers and setup routing in windows.

I thought you wanted one network not to go to other network and waste time, only way to accomplis this is by using two diffrent subnets.

Also putting two DHCP server on same subnet is generally a BAD idea.
