I'm really a software developer but we're leasing two machines in a datacentre to host our software.
They are both Windows 2003 servers and both have 2 network cards. 1 each to connect to the network and the other one connected with a cross cable to each other.
I want to be able to configure a private network between the two machines but I don't even know how to allocate an IP address to the private NIC cards. Each machine has 5 IP Addresses each. I would also like to at a later date to have VPN connections into this private network from our local machines.
Thanks for any help.
