I have been trying to get this working for a while now with no luck. I am having problems configuring the server with 2 network cards so that the addresses are routed. I have set up NIC1 which is the internal ip range and NIC2 which is supposed to be the external adapter which you connect to via VPN. The VPN is working but the internal network is a mess. I can only configure internal clients to connect to NIC2 so they will be capable of accessing the inet and printing. If they are getting DHCP using the NIC1 address, then I cant get inet access etc. It must be something small but I cant figure it out.
The router appears configured as its passing requests thru to NIC2 on the server and allowing me to connect remotely.
I have a 2nd question open which linked below worth 250 points, totalling 750 points. If you would like to read some history into this problem.
Below is configuration currently: (Taken from 2nd question)
NIC 1: Internal addresses - 192.168.0.99 (Server)
Default Gateway - None specified
Preferred DNS server - 192.168.0.99
NIC 2: WAN adapters IP address: 192.168.1.8 (SERVER)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway - 192.168.1.1 - Netgear Router
Pref DNS Server - 192.168.0.99 (1st NIC on server)
netgear routers ip address: - 192.168.1.1
clients ip address: 192.168.0.15
dns and wins address: 192.168.0.99
router/default gateway: 192.168.1.1
NOTE: when Im on thse server, I CAN NOT ping the router - 100% packet loss
When I am on the cleient I can ping the router, however still can NOT access the interent
If I make the following changes on the local PC with the ip addresses, I can connect to the internet from clients
NEW IP addres on W/S: 192.168.1.20
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 192.168.1.1 *************** Would not work with DNS server or 192.168.0.99
VPN still works but I have set this IP temporary so I can use internet. I have done as much testing as I could. Can you see where Im going wrong. To me it appears the problem is that NIC1 is not routing to NIC2 when the clients request data. Do I need a manual entry somewhere??
thanks for your help
