Using Windows Server 2003 to route between 2 subnets

Last Modified: 2013-11-05
I currently have one subnet 192.168.1.x /24 which is connect to a GW out to the internet.  I am trying to add an additional subnet (192.168.150.x/24) using a multi-homed Windows Server 2K3 box.  Both networks need to be able to communicate with each other and out to the internet.

I have configured each network card with a IP address for their respective subnets:


I have set the following registry key to 1

A node in the original subnetis set up as :
and the new subnet: 255..255.255.0

From the old subnet ( I can access the internet and ping a machine in the new subnet.  From the new subnetI can ping internally, both NIC's on the router but nowhere past there (old subnet, or internet)

Any help would be greatly appreciated
