Double Router Setup
Posted on 2004-08-09
I have got a problem. I have setup Small Business Server for my Uncle/Aunt at their business that they run out of their home. I have set things up with a linksys wireless router which is connected to their broadband connection. This provides access to the internet to the computers in the house, which are not part of the SBS network. The small business server has two nics, one of which is connected to this router and therefore uses a 192.xxx.xxx.xxx ip for the wide area network. The second nic is connected to the second linksys router which just acts as a switch... My problem is that SBS requires that I don't have any other DHCP servers on the network, either internal or external, but when I do that and set the DHCP scopes on the SBS to have one for the outside network, as the are on different sub-nets, the outside computers can not pickup an ip address. I have set these computers to use a static ip for now, but I would like them to be able to pickup ip addresses from the server, as they have clients that will connect to the outside network from time to time to access internet and print....
