W2k3 Server LAN behind Linksys RV016 Router - Q&A

Wanting to setup LAN with client machines accessing a windows 2003 server through a Linksys RV016 router. No Internet access, strictly a LAN. I am wanting to ensure a compatible client IP network that routes through the Linksys and communicates with the server domain. I am looking for some guidance.  I have set up an AD Domain. Not wanting to segment but I want the router to control IPs. The server and other clients will share the router. I would like to have the server behind the router and all clients having to go through the router to get to the server but I'm still learning how to accomplish that. I want the server to be like the Internet and the workstations accessing it through the router and visa verse. The VPN router has two Internet (WAN) ports and I would like the server to use one of them while the client machines utilize the regular ports.

I currently will have 8 client stations that will access the server and will likely expand to 12 over the next few months.

Make your server 10.1.1.1/24 and the DMZ port it is connected to 10.1.1.2/24.  Set your clients on a range 10.1.2.1/24.  Then set up access rules to allow users to access the server. Should work fine.

primeradmin-

The /24 denotes a 24-bit subnet mask, which is simply the mask 255.255.255.0.  When you have that mask, it means that the IP addresses on your network all have the same first three octets, and the last is variable.

For instance, everything on your network begins with the same (for example) 192.168.1.x - the "X" being variable.

To further interpret the good advice rickhobbs gives: (slight change, I prefer the router to be the ".1" in the IP range)

Server IP:             10.1.1.2 (Gateway address of 10.1.1.1)
Router IP (WAN):  10.1.1.1
Router IP (LAN):    10.1.2.1
Client IPs:             10.1.2.2 through 10.1.2.254  (Gateway addresses of 10.1.2.1)

*All devices have a /24 mask, ie 255.255.255.0

Thanks,

Justin

Either way is fine, in my opinion.  I usually work my way up from Internet, also, starting at 10.1.1.1 for the default gateway.   Since he doesn't have an Internet connection, I just let it fly.

You have to close the question by either awarding or splitting the points or asking for a refund of the points.  Since the original question was answered, I don't know if the powers that be will refund the points.
