Routing between 2 networks + Interweb access.
Posted on 2003-10-29
Ok this is the scenario. At the moment I have 2 separate physical networks, they are as listed:
10.0.0.0 - 255.0.0.0
These IP Ranges cannot be changed. My users and other pc devices sit on the 10.0.0.0 network. The internet gateway is also located on this network. The 188.8.131.52 network was put in place before my time and hosts a UNIX application server and multiple medical insturments.
What currently is happening is that I have a Win2k server sitting in between the 10.0.0.0 network and the 184.108.40.206 network acting as a router. I would love to replace this with some sort of physical router so that when I reboot the 2k server all my users don't lose access to thier main course of work.
What I'm looking for here:
1. I want a suggestion as far as what hardware I should choose. I'd love it to have a gui if possible, though I know cisco doesn't and if that's the consensus on what's best I would be more than happy to choose them.
2. Any and all tips on how to set it up, or tell me if I should be moving in a diffrent direction.
