How To Connect 2 seperate networks or 2 seperate subnets that are connected on the same switch Using a single windows 2003 routing and remote access server
Posted on 2008-10-07
Hi experts , have been looking all around the web but i could not find a clear solution to my problem
I will first explain my network structure
I have around 40 computer and 3 servers(isa 2006 , domain controllers etc) connected with switches . The network address for 30 computer and 3 servers is in the 10.10.1.0 255.255.255.0 these are connected to the internet using isa server with ip 10.10.1.102.( ADSL Connection #1).
The other 10 computer have the network address 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 and they connect to the internet using a separate adsl line (ADSL #2) with router address 192.168.1.254 255.255.255.0.
I have one windows 2003 standard edition server with 2 nics installed with the following addresses:-
NIC1 : 10.10.1.203 255.255.255.0 gateway 10.10.1.102 dns 10.10.1.200
NIC2 : 192.168.1.203 255.255.255.0 gateway blank no dns
So i have installed routing and remote access server with Router lan routing option only selected, i configured the server with ip routing enabled .
i created a new RIP (RIP2) protocol
i added the the 2 NICs interface to the RIP protocol
i right clicked on both interface in the general section and checked the enalbe ip discovery.
i created 2 static routes
nic1 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.203
nic2 10.10.1.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.1.203
I used to client machines with the below setting to test:-
a ping from any client in the 192.168.1.0 to 10.10.1.0 network is unsuccessful
a ping from any client in the 10.10.1.0 to 192.168.1.0 network is also unsuccessful
only pings to 10.10.1.203 and 192.168.1.203 are successful
So my aim is to be able to allow 2 way access between the 192.168.1.0 network and the 10.10.10 network with the single windows 2003 router.
