Creating internal network within enterprise network

Hi

Scenario:

I work for a large Organisation with a dedicated network/ server team who has very stringent network rules. I head up the support team at one of the schools.

I've been asked to setup a small Sharepoint system within the school as a potential replacement for our network share issues etc. which are subsequently maintained by the server team.

Problem:

From a political point of view, the network/ server team must not know about our Sharepoint plans. Problem being, I need to hook into the enterprise network to be able to receive internet.

Facts:

They use mac address filtering and constantly snoop for any potential threats on the network.

Question:

How can I create a small internal network so my team can work on this sharePoint project. I have server 2003 and can build an ISA server.

My proposed solution:

I build an ISA server with two network cards. One registered as a regular client machine with a regular client name so the network team does not suspect anything. The other network card with an internal address. This network card then connects to my 2003 server running SharePoint services. The 2003 machine then broadcasts internally through a hub to the client machines, also with two network cards in.

Can you help me fill the gaps or such something better? I'll need to enable internet routing on the ISA no doubt.

Use virtual machines.  I recommend VMware Workstation.  You can build a completely isolated virtual network.

Also, a VMware network can share the NIC of the host operating system.

I haven't a clue how to setup a virtual network.

Can you give us a clue as to where to start?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
