We have an issue, where a customer has started a small business and requires to have a new network but retain their existing network. New network will be on IP address 192.168.1.x and the existing network will be on 192.168.16.x. My collegue has put 2 network cards in the new server (Local LAN on 192.168.1.x and secondary card on 192.168.16.x) and we wish to be able to route traffic (printing + sage) via the 192.168.16.x network and internet, email, etc via the 192.168.1.x network, I was thinking that this may be over complicating matters and the simplest soultion would be to put a dual wan firewall (Draytek 2910 or something similar) on the 192.168.1.x network and add routes within the firewall to talk to the 192.168.16.x network. Looking for information as to what would be the best solution

Is the server a Windows server?

Can you use network bridge built in Windows server?

Yes, the routes generally don't distinguish traffic type and work on target destinations.

You can use the server as a router quite easily, just add the routes onto the server in RRAS and tell which network card to use based on destination.

Then just add the server as the gateway on the client machines and presto, no need for extra hardware.

New server is a Windows 2008 server, other network is a 2003 network. Problem is they don't want the other network to see what they are working on, so only want to have transparancy out of 192.168.1.x network to 192.168.16.x network to use printers & accessing specific sage data. Thought about RRAS, but decided that this would not give adequate levels of security which the customer also requires.
