Win 2003 Test server needs access to Gateway on another subnet

I'll try to make it easy to understand:

I have 1 windows NT Domain, all computers using 216.53.68.x / 255.255.255.0 / 216.53.68.62 (Firebox II Gateway)

I setup a new 2003 domain on same network using 192.168.0.x / 255.255.255.0
plugged it to the same switch and created a route on the firewall that says 192.168.0.0/24  - 216.53.68.62

note: I did not plug the second domain to external port of firewall, but directly to switch of my existing nt domain.

Question??

How do I setup the defualt gateway on the new 2003 domain to access the Internet when it's on a differnet subnet (216.53.68.62)

thanks,
Yosi

Only using VLANs can you do this.  Unless you have a second interface on the router to use.

what about using the 2003 server as a router or using NAT?

The NIC still requires an IP on the gateway's subnet.  With a VLAN, the switch port is setup on the server subnet then a trunking port is used to send the packets to the right interface for the gateway.  

Alternately, you can use your other NIC to connect to the network as well using the proper IP addressing then enable routing.  You'll have to disable NetBIOS on one of the NICs to avoid a name conflict.
