Windows 2003 server set up dhcp/dns/route to internet
Posted on 2013-12-24
I need help with configuring a windows 2003 server. I have this server with two nic cards and it causing me nothing but problems. When the internet goes out, some how the configuration is lost and the clients cannot get connected again. I would like to configure this server with one nic. I have a netopia router configured with an internal ip address -
10.0.0.254 - netopia router - not doing dhcp (basically routing internal clients to the internet)
10.0.0.216 and 10.0.0.10
10.0.0.10, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, gateway - 10.0.0.254 (router); dns - (external ATT dns servers)
private: 10.0.0.216, subnet mask 255.255.0.0, gateway - 10.0.0.254, dns 10.0.0.216
I removed all the RRAS set up because I thought that may have been causing the issue, but I could not get my internal clients to connect at all. Would not see the internal network, could not get to anything. The 10.0.0.216 was not sending or receiving packets.
The public nic is plugged directly into the router and I have 3 clients plugged into the router now. They are working, but I have no more ports on the router and I have about 15 clients.
I also need to set up a vpn remote access to this server as the workers travel and need to connect to the server database.
I basically need to how set this up so that I can route all internal traffic to some internal database servers and out to the internet through one nic card. This two nic card situation is causing too many issues. I have not done this in a while, so step by step will be helpful.
Cannot set up the router to do router because there are only 5 addresses. The server is doing dhcp and dns. Thank you for any help you can give.
