Routing between two different subnets
Posted on 2004-04-26
I am running a Windows 2000 Server environment with Win 2000 and XP clients.
We have one physical network with a set of public IP address's e.g 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52 we recently ran out of these address and so have been assigned another subnet 184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11. We wish to use both subnets but I am unsure of the best way to connect the two. We have a choice of either using one of our exiasting fileservers to do the routing or we have a Layer 3 switch which I have been told could possibly do it also.
Which would be the best solution to use - I have been told that using the server for routing may cause problems by putting to much load on the server.
