Windows SBS 2003: 2 network card setup

235 Views
Last Modified: 2010-04-19
Hi All,

What is the best way of setting up a two network card setup on a windows server. We used to have one connection for network and Internet access but are now moving to seperate connections for internet and network. How do I set this up? So that all of our network users can access the server on the network connection and access the internet on the internet connection.

Any help appreciated.

One card for local network and other is for internet ...yes you are correct but you can install the  the router  to configure the ISP ,its easy to mainatain and configure or do you want to install the proxy on the server..?

That's not what a two-nic configuration would accomplish.  In order to do what you are stating above, you would have to have two NICs on every workstation which is a bit ridiculous actually.

What exactly is the problem you are trying to solve?
