Windows Server 2 NICs - routing problem

Posted on 2011-04-21
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

Following situation;
1 Server 2008 with 2 NICs.
NIC 1: connected to network: with MASK GW
NIC 2: connected to NAS: with MASK no GW

Generally it works, BUT when I try to ping into the network then the first ping's answer is "destination host unreachable". The second ping already works normal.
(ping to NAS works just fine)

Here is my "route print":
Interface List
 14...00 50 56 96 00 09 ......Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network Connection #2
 11...00 50 56 96 00 01 ......Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network Connection
  1...........................Software Loopback Interface 1
 13...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Microsoft ISATAP Adapter
 12...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface
 15...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #2

IPv6 Route Table
Active Routes:

  1    306 ::1/128                  On-link
  1    306 ff00::/8                 On-link
Persistent Routes:

I want the connection to work normally in both direction.
Do I have to add a route?
Thanks for your help,

    One of the problems is the overlapping networks. with a mask of (otherwise known as is the same network as

    basically with with a you are saying any address on the 10.x.x.x is on the same network so your ping will go out of the wrong interface. You should change the nas network to 192.168.x.x addresses (or something along those lines).
