** I'm giving max points for this! ** I'm doing a job for a real estate place and I'm no networking genius although I am pretty good with it. This is the setup they have: 3 servers, a T1 line going into an access point which is hooked to a 5 port switch which is hooked to a broadband router which goes into three 16 port switches. One of the servers, which is currently configured with a static internal IP and running Win2000 Server, is hooked into one of the 16 port switches. (this server holds software for the VOIP phone system which allows routing tables and other features to be used with the IP phones). It must now be made accessible to the internet so that a remote office with 3 of our IP phones can also use the routing software. The software comes with an option to define an external hostname as well as internal. I also forgot to mention that the router is configured with a static public IP and uses NAT and DHCP to connect the workstations to the internet; it is the gateway for the whole network. Now I need that server to bypass the router and its public ip so that I can configure a 2nd public IP just for that server so that the remote office can connect and use the software. What I did is install a new NIC into the server and connected it straight to the switch (which is right after the access point and right before the router). So now I'm kinda confused cause if I disable the network connection for the internal NIC, I'm still not getting internet on the 2nd NIC which I configured with a public IP. Does anyone know what I can do to get this thing running in the internal network as well as external? I know it's not the clearest question and thats cause I'm burnt out but if you have questions, ask them and I'll check back several times a day. Thanks so much for the help.
