Building a dual network. Where do I start?
Posted on 2010-09-10
I'd love to be able to seperate the workload between two networks, one being a network inside of a domain entrusted with movement/editing of files on the primary server, as well as always keeping connection alive to our domain controller whether for authentication purposes or whatever the need might be, like accessing a computer on a local network via remote connection. this should also increase security but then thats in theory.
the other network would be the one providing gateway to the internet.
What kind of hardware/software am I looking at?
Does each workstation need to have 2 ethernet cards and 2 cables connected?
Or can a dual network exist withing the same cable
Like i mentioned in my title, i dunno where to begin with this. It might not even be the best idea for our company (1 DC/3 servers total, 15 workstations). Where do I start? What could be the cost?
