Hi,

I'm after comformation that this idea will / won't work. I have an existing domain with a Win2k DHCP server and need to setup a BSB server for (disaster recover reasons) with DHCP on a diffrent range for without them conflicting. However I need the SBS to connect to the internet for ease of setup.

I was thinking of using a Linksys router with static IP and  plugging it in to the current netwotk via the WAN port. That way I should be able to setup the SBS server with DHCP without it conflicting with the original network and still get internet on the sbs server?

This sound about right?

You are correct; placing the SBS server behind a firewall, with the WAN port of the firewall uplinking to the main network, will prevent a conflict occurring in DHCP. In other words, the DHCP on the Windows 2000 server will not conflict with the SBS.

Provided the SBS is on the LAN side of the firewall, and the rest of the network is on the 'WAN' side, you will not have any issues. Remember that for routing to work correctly, the subnet on the LAN-side of the firewall must be different to that of the main LAN connected to the WAN port.
