3g for wan, ethernet for lan on laptop
Posted on 2014-01-16
hi i hope you are well.
i have a customer who has a terminal server (TS) set up. their clients connect via rdp on a lan.
this is done by ethernet normally.
problem is their broadband has gone down, so the entire network has no internet access
they purchased a dongle today (they have a draytek vigor 2830n which has a 3g wan option) but its not compatible. it is going to take a few days for the bb to come back on or to get the right dongle.
for various reasons that i dont want to go into, the router handles dhcp. i also really dont want to hook up the ts to the internet via the 3g dongle.
they can limp along with just one Win 7 workstation connected to the internet and the lan so that they can access the ts until we get a compatible dongle.
however, i cant just plug both lan and dongle in, it doesnt work (either lan or internet cuts off)
is there a way of configuring the ethernet card to only route to local address and pass the internet stuff onto the 3g dongle?
im hoping that this will give them access to the TS over the lan and access to the internet via the dongle.
