Using 3Com LanModem with Win2K DHCP Server - is it possible?
Posted on 2005-03-18
I have a client with a small network (8PC's running 98 and XP, and a 2k PDC running DHCP server). They are using a 3Com LanModem to connect to a local dial-up ISP.
Is there a way to allow the clients to obtain IP's from the DHCP server on the 2K machine while still allowing them to access the Internet via the LanModem?
The local clients are receiving an error message stating, in essence, that there are no more available WAN connections on the lanModem. I have gone in to the lanModem and released the old workstation connections but it seems to dole out these connections based on its own DHCP server (which is disabled).
I'd really like to keep the DHCP server on the 2K machine running as the client is part of a statewide network and if the lanModem resets to the default config (192.168.x.x) we can't see the local machines from our remote site.
