Hi All,

I'm sure this is an easy problem for you...

I am creating a new training suite in our office which needs to be completely seperate from our current domain.  It will have a new server and PCs, all running by itself with no cross-over between it and the existing domain.  This is the easy part (I think).  

I need to use the existing company network wiring to connect these machines/server to the internet via the existing router (no proxy).  This is the only thing they need to share.

My Question then;

Can I just setup a new server (for AD/DNS//Files), PCs (fixed IP) and hub for the new small (10 pc) network and plug it into the existing company network for internet, or am I going to bump into problems? and if so, what are the problems likely to be?

Thank you in advance for your help.
