I have a Windows 2003 Serve with two network cards.
1st network card:
The other network card is not configured yet but I want it to be
I do realize that machine can only have one gateway and I know that I need to add routes for both network cards but I don't know how. I want the routes to say anything that comes for the 192.168.3.X subnet to use gateway and anything that comes for the subnet 192.168.6.x to use gateway
Should it be something like:
 route add mask METRIC 20 IF 1
 route add mask METRIC 20 IF 2
How can I tell which card is which number? Also the 192.168.6.x connects to Safe@Office Appliance and its used for VPN only the 192.168.3.x in my internal network. Where should I leave the gateway on the card 1 (VPN) or card 2 ( Network)
Thank you
