Single server, two NICs, two subnets, two routers
Posted on 2009-04-29
I have a Windows 2003 server running AD with two NICs that I would like to have connected to two subnets. Subnet #1 on IP range 192.168.1.* and Subnet #2 on IP range 192.168.2.*
The server should have two IP addresses, one for each NIC/subnet, say for example 192.168.1.100 and 192.168.2.100
Subnets should be completely segregated... i.e. neither subnet should be able to see the other apart from the server being able to see both.
Each subnet should also have it's own separate router/gateway to the Internet. For example, one at 192.168.1.1 and one at 192.168.2.1
The clients on subnet 192.168.1.0 should use the router at 192.168.1.1 for Internet access, while the clients on subnet 192.168.2.0 should use the router on that subnet (192.168.2.1) for Internet access. It would be preferable for the server to use the router at 192.168.1.1 for DNS lookups and Internet.
Is this configuration workable?
