Hi Experts,

I am setting up my office network and encountered some problems.

I have 2 physical servers and both are installed with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition x64. Lets name these two server A and B.

On one of the Ethernet port on Server A will be connected to dedicated IP address for external internet. The other Ethernet port on Server A will be connected to a switch.

Server B will have one of the Ethernet port connected to Dynamic IP address for external internet. The other Ethernet port on Server B will be connected to the switch.

Server A will be used for IIS (Web Server)
Server B will be used for Active Directory, VPN access, Terminal Server

There are multiple computers running Windows Vista that will be connected to the switch as well.


===================
My Question
===================
Since server B do not have a dedicated IP address, is there any ways that I can allow people to connect to Server A and then depends on type of connection request (lets say VPN) and forward it accordingly to different internal server? (In this case, VPN should be forward to Server B).


Please tell me if further clearification are needed.

Thanks

look into sspi. its a new tunneling protocol available with server 2008 that will do what your asking for.


alternatly, you could just port forward from the public ip on server a to the wlan port of server b.
