Using Windows 2000 server as a gateway to the internet
Posted on 2003-03-25
This is my problem.
i have a small win 2k network and i would like to provide internet acceess to it with an adsl router. I dont want to plug the router into the switch and set the default gateways of the pcs to it - i want to use routing and remote access on a dedicated win2k server machine.
On the gateway machine i installed 2 nics - one for the internal network and one for to connect directly into the router.
the internal network addresss are 192.168.0.*. The external nic is set to dhcp to get an address from the router - it doesnt need to be so
can anyone give me detailed instructions on how to accomplish this and also how i need to configure the workstations ?
one other problem i a getting is that when i installed the 2 nics only one seems to be workign at any one time. no conflicts nothing but i can only ping what is connected to one card at any one time, to see the stuff on the other card i have to disable it and reenable it.
