Please help I have something crazy going on with a XP Pro machine..
Here's my setup
Internet connection Cisco router 18.104.22.168 with 5 IP's 22.214.171.124-206
Local Lan Subnet: 192.168.0.0
VPN Router: LAN-192.168.0.1 /Wan-126.96.36.199
File Server: 192.168.0.2
File Server: 192.168.0.3
Web Server: 192.168.0.4
(all computers have 1 NIC)
This setup has been working fine for years. All http requests come in to router and get fowarded to the web server..
Want to add a XP Pro machine to use for another single site web server. this web server will need to access files on the local lan file server. So I put two NIC's in the computer. I am not using any Nat or VPN router on this computer.
NIC #1: 192.168.0.5(same subnet as lan)
NIC #2: 188.8.131.52(cable modem)
Something is wrong here.. I can remote desktop into the computer from the VPN on the lan 192.168.0.5 but when i do it seems that 184.108.40.206 goes dead. I cannot ping it or anything. then when i log out something changes and then can log into the 220.127.116.11 ip and then the lan 192.168.0.5 i cannot ping. something is crazy here and it is not me.I spent days on this to figure it out and just cant!!
Please Help!!! Joe
