Two NIC's on a server
Posted on 2012-03-27
We have a single Windows 2003 server with two NIC’s. Until now only one has been used and the other has been disabled. We now need to setup a VPN and wanted to use the second NIC for this.
This is how NIC1 was already configured and how I configured NIC2 for the proposed VPN.
However, as soon as I enable NIC2, the network loses connectivity to the Internet, although it comes back at intervals of something like 15 minutes and then goes again. Incidentally, NIC2 doesn’t even have a patch cable connected yet.
Clearly I am doing something wrong and would appreciate some guidance on this.
