Connecting to two LANs simultaneously
Posted on 2004-10-22
I am currently connected to my office building LAN using a built-in NIC card. It is a standard ethernet LAN connection using Novell and TCP/IP w/ DHCP. However, I have a need to connect to a second LAN made up of a couple of computers in my office. I have purchased a switch in my office and have assigned those computers static IPs. I also installed a second NIC in my PC running XP. Is it possible to connect to these two networks simultaneously? I do not want to bridge the two networks as I don't want these computers to be on the office network. If so, how should I set it up, and how do I reference the IP addresses of this small network when pinging, etc...
Thanks for your help,
