Windows 2000 server + ICS + multiple public ip's
Posted on 2003-12-03
Ok, so here's my problem.
I currently have a home network that includes a machine acting as a server (windows 2000 server installed) and 3 other computers (windows 2000 installed).
the server shares internet to other computers using ICS. I now have 5 new ip's from my isp, and until I get everything updated regarding dns and other stuff, I want to have the server have at least 2 public ip's (the current one, and one of the new 5)
So, what I have done is add a second Ip to the server. Server correctly uses the first (current) ip as main ip, and second ip (new one with a higher metric number) responds to pings, and can be assigned directly for stuff...
the problem i have is regarding the other pc's that share internet though ICS from the server. All other machines have the new ip as the public one. I dont know why it does this, but i've tried various web pages that list yer public ip, and in every case the new one shows up, instead of the old one...
what am I doing wrong? how can I have all pc's use whatever ip I have as primary one on server?
