Routing with Windows 2003 Server
Posted on 2004-04-18
System setup : Windows 2003 Server with IP 192.168.0.1 - 255.255.255.0 with 25 user connected to the server and a broadband device (BBD) with IP 10.23.254.1 - 255.255.255.240
The problem I'm having is that with the current subnet masks available to me the server can not connect to the BBD. The subnet & subnet mask on the BBD is static and can not be changed. The logical solution is the change the LAN's subnet mask to that of the BBD, but with a sunbet mask of 255.255.255.240 you have a limit of 14 on the last segment of your IP range where I need to connect 26 users to the BBD.
The server's and LAN's subnet & subnet mask can be changed to any value.
I've read about IP routing, bridging and NAT that are supported by Win2003 but have relative little knowledge of routing with Win2003.
Can you assist with a solution to my problem
