Windows server 2008 R2 NIC Routing
Posted on 2013-06-20
I'm trying to share the internet connection that my windows 2008 R2 server has on one NIC with computers on the second NIC.
Unfortunately, when I use the "internet sharing" (ICS) posts elsewhere on the site, I find that it wants to change my ip address automatically during setup without any choice. Since I'm forced to used to use a specific ip address on the internet-accessible network, I can't use the ip address that it is giving me.
So, my end goal is to be able to share the internet connection the server enjoys on NIC#1 with computers on NIC#2. ICS might not be the route I can go due to the fact that I need to have a specific ip address. Is there a way to route the packets between the two networks?
So, here's my basic setup.
Windows 2008 R2 Server with two NIC's
NIC #1 connected to network with internet connection. This NIC is forced to have an ip address of 192.168.200.19 by the managers of the network. This computer can currently browse the web
NIC#2 is connected to a 10.2.x.x network that I would like to have internet connectivity.
How should I attack this problem?
