joining two networks who are on different ip schemes

hi
i have two networks both are on different ip address schemes one network which is SBS 2008 which has mostly windows client is on ip 10.10.100.x

the other network has most hosts are Mac
there ips ranges are
192.168.0.x or something

now the outcome objective is to share document from the 10.10.100.200 to the 192.168.0.x
they both resides in the same physical office the prime purpose is to modify excel or words files from both networks

please advise the best way to accomplish this.

Thanks

Hello,

If file transfer between SBS 2008 server and MAC client, you have to add additional IP address of 192.168.0.x series on the server.

the macs are sort of like connected to SAN storage and most of them have static ip address they are also connected with the different router the sbs is on different router.

you have meny options depends on what Network infrsstructure you have.

if you have Cisco L3 switch you can create VLAN 2 or 3 Vlan, and manage.

if you have 2 NICS on your Windows server, you can enable routing, connect Network A on LAN1, Connect Network B with LAN 2.

if you dont have any L3 switch and also 2NIC on any server even you are not intrested in any sort of expense, you can use your any avaible router in your network.

on your router add network B, connect Network B cable, check ping from both if required add route. thats all finish.

hi
i do not have any cisco router i am using third party provider which enables me to bond my 3 adsl lines together I am under the impression that on my sbs 2008 i can only use one NIC card so if i understand correctly
I have netgear router DJ834G V5 which is for the Mac network I can connect an Ethernet cable from this router to my sbs 2008 box?

thanks

yes you can.
the idea is you have to have one router or any Layer 3 device to send and recive traffic between two networks.

on the actual 2nd NIC card do i need to assign static ip address for the server or the dynamic ip address will work and also it wont effect my things such as exchange 2007 which is on first NIC card ?

also the share resource such as share folder can be accessible by the other LAN client without defining the ip address scope?

Hello,

You have to assign static IP on the secondary NIC. It won't affect any services. Also, you won't need to define any additional IP on MAC or LAN client but you have to configure default gateway to the IP you assigned to secondary NIC. Also, Routing needs to be enabled from SBS server.

you have to assign static ip but i recomed you dont use your exchange server NIC, this will not make any difference but i am not sure.

you can use any PC, add one more NIC other than build in card any close the case.

This thread moved awfully fast but I should warn you that a 2-NIC topology (or even a 2 IP address topology on a single NIC) is *NOT* supported on SBS. Things *will* start failing. You should use a device (router, layer 3 switch) to route traffic between the two subnets, but don't adjust SBS from its defaults.
