Route Traffic between two NICs on Windows XP
Posted on 2011-05-13
I'm not too good with configuring routing outside of Cisco products, and I've never done this in Windows. Here goes:
We have a PC that has two NICs installed. One NIC is on our primary network, and the PC has a static IP, and is also bound to Active Directory. The other NIC is on a separate network that monitors a specific piece of equipment at a remote location (it's sent over a "T1" via Microwave). This is the only device in the entire organization with access to the other network.
What I want to do is configure a APC UPS at the remote location with temperature monitoring. I want it to be able to e-mail and page me in the event that the temperature sensor reaches the specified thresholds, or if there is a power interruption.
Is there a way to pass traffic from 10.1.1.1 (device network) to 192.168.1.1 (main network) for traffic outside of that network? Can I set the Windows machine as the gateway for that specific network? Due to the location of the PC and the wiring, I can't configure another VLAN in the main router for passing the info back and forth (that would be easy!).
Thanks so much! I appreciate any help.
