My network is setup in 2 aspects the internal which contains 10 network addresses and the external which has our IP's. We have a server which is locked off access at firewall for only one website but has 2 external ip's to it. The server serves as a test and development server and sits on the external network. I have users internally on the 10 network who map the drive on their macs and after a random period of time sometimes two minutes sometimes a day the drives disconnect them. I tried microsofts drive timeout extension

i also tried installing more CAL's on the server.
still disconnects randomly. I tried disabling any AV software and it still does it i also alowed full connectivity in firewalls from internal to the server and from the server to internal.
still does it. I can not seem to figure this out
I was thinking of installing another NIC in there and putting it on the internal network thinking maybe since there is only 1 IP being seen on the server connecting like 30 times that the internal nic will see the different systems.
Is this a possibility? does anyone have any suggestions?
