When using a server with two NIC cards so that the modem and router are plugged into the Internet NIC and the other NIC is on the LAN side (to the switch?) what is the deal if you don't have a static IP address from your ISP. Obviously, the server has a static IP address and is the DHCP server for the clients.
-- Does the server give the IP addresses via the switch?
-- The router has DHCP turned off and is just the default gateway?
-- Is the outside part of the router just getting dynamic IP addresses from the ISP?
Sorry, I am used to a single network card with a static IP addresses and setting up the router with static those IP addresses then to a switch wherer the server is connected and sends IP and DNS to each client.
Thanks. Just a newbie at networking with servera plus two network cards plus no static IP address.
