DSL Cable to a Switch
Posted on 2003-11-15
My office network has 40 nodes connected to a Win 2K network.
My company recently moved to Broadband Connection with 6 static IPs . The ISP provided us with a ' Great Speed R205S' DSL Router. I connected the router directly to the switch. In the LAN settings of the router I have assigned an internal IP as the secondary IP address. (say IP-1). I have a proxy server (with an internal Ip say IP-2) using a third party tool called Wingate to share the Internet Connection. Now my question is how the Internet Connection can be made available to clients? How does my proxy server detects the connection? Is there a real need to use a Proxy Server in such a scenario? Will enabling NAT on the DSL Router settings do the needful. PLs pls guys out there help me. How can i share this internet connection among my LAN users.
Thanks in advance
