I am trying to setup Direct Access and i am having trouble assigning the 2 require external ip addresses to the UAG servers 'external' network card.

I have been supplied with a bank of 4 external ip addresses by my adsl supplier.

My server sits behind an Cisco/Linksys ADSL router.

How do i get the external ip addresses to work on the server?

Is your router capable of having multiple external IP address?  Please supply the make/model.

Are the IP addresses consecutive? Typical assignments are 1,5,13 usable

I don't see a lot of information about that device out there.  This looks to be an old product.  I don't think this device it going to be able to accomplish what you need done. It needs to understand the subnet assigned to you and be able to handle multiple IP's on the external interface or on a DMZ interface.  We need more detail on your setup.  Are you attempting to assign the static IP's on the actual Windows server NIC?

I agree - difficult to find much in a search, but when I search for pictures, it looks like a home class router.  Home routers are not going to support multiple IPs.  You need a business class router.
