Making an internet connection available to two separate networks (RRAS) ?
Posted on 2003-11-10
Hello guys, wondering if you can help !
I have two seperate private networks :
1. A windows NT 4 server with WIN98 / XP clients (192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.254)
2. A windows 2003 server with XP clients (192.168.2.1 - 192.168.2.254)
The problem I have is that my NT4 clients can access the internet (as a proxy server on that network is hosting web services), however I would now like my WIN2003 clients to access the web also.
I use DHCP on both networks, and to ensure the correct policies are assigned at bootup, I definately require my WIN2003 clients to logon to the WIN2003 server only !
If I put my WIN2003 server onto the same IP network as the NT box, this would allow me to access the proxy server, but it will cause me all sorts of problems when my clients are logging onto the network.
I guess that RRAS on the WIN2003 server is probably my best software solution, but how should I set things up ? What I really need is to keep my networks separate, but to make the address of my NT PROXY SERVER available to my WIN2003 network. I am really stuck as how to do it !!
Any help would be most appreciated !
