Windows Routing: Route a small subnet using Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2011-09-28
I have two networks in my office. One is the regular network where all the users are and where the internet is
( 10.1.1.0 /24 )
I also have this small network (192.168.1.0 /24) that does not connect to the internet. I would like this small network to be able to access the internet.
Here is how it's set up and what it is used for: I got a Windows 2003 server that has two network cards. One of them is connected to the 10.1.1.0 network using a static IP 10.1.1.20 and the other one is connected to the 192.168.1.0 network with a static IP 192.168.1.20
The Windows server is also a DHCP server on the 192.168.1.0 network. So it acts as a default gateway for this network. This network is used for Imaging systems using Symantec ghost. It is a closed network and everything works fine. Now, from time to time I would like this small network to be able to connect to the internet.
So how do I set up routing on the Windows Server 2003 to route the 192.168.1.0 network from this side to it's other NIC to access the 10.1.1.0 network? On this Side of the network I have a Cisco Router that acts as the DHCP server and is the default gateway with the IP address of 10.1.1.1
