Need SBS 2003 Server to connect to another subnet
- I have a SBS 2003 Server configured on a local lan ip range of using .10
So the DNS, DHCP and Gateway is for the XP PRO workstations on the LAN.
- All the workstations and server LAN connection are connected to a 24 port switch.
- The Server has a second NIC configured to a broadband modem to the ISP.
- Special configuration, there is a T1 cisco router also connected to our switch with a gateway address of and all the workstations have their gateway set to this one instead of the default one. The cisco router is now set to re-route internet and email traffic back to the SBS 2003 gateway at and allow everything else through (they use AS400 applications using emulation programs)
- My question is how do I get the SBS server to get to or recognize all the other IP adresses that the workstations can see. The server can only ping the gateway at this point. I thought maybe setting a bridge up on an additional NIC but I've read in previous posts the SBS does not allow Bridges.
The reason for wanting this is to create a forward lookup zone to a DNS server on the other side of that gateway. The easiest solution would be prefered.
Thank you in advance.
