Adding a routre in server 2012

We have a database server on our lan and a webserver in a DMZ. I have been asked to add a router on the server from (the dmz subnet) to an address on our LAN.

I am running server 2012 on the LAN.

How do I do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Most people refer to a DMZ as a separate broadcast domain but connected to the same router as the LAN and the Internet segments. As such, usually nothing needs to be changed on the server. The default gateway, on the other hand, needs to be configured to pass traffic into the LAN from the DMZ for that server.

If, however, you do have two separate firewalls or routers and sending traffic to the default gateway to reach the LAN would not work then you need to define a static route. The command line to add a static route it "route add" and is fully documented on TechNet.  The rest, as above is still  the same though. You need to have a path from the DMZ to the LAN and your router (not the server) defined as the gateway in the static route must be properly configured to pass that traffic. Since each router is different and little information is provided, it is difficult to be more specific here.
