Routing two seperate network

With out using a cisco router. In my Cisco Switch I have two Vlan (a) Vlan 10 and (b) Vlan(20). Vlan 10 my network id 10.10.10.x/24 where the server are hook. Vlan 20 my network id 10.10.20.x/24 where computer clients and printer are hook. Can I use Windows server 2012 to act as a router so the vlan 20 clients can ping or access the vlan 10?

You can, but windows is not an efficient router and the license cost alone will make it more expensive than his getting a dedicates router. I'd strongly recommend against it.

But if you want to do it, you'll need one NIC on each VLAN, you'll need to install the routing role, and then configure it to route traffic between the two NICs. Then the clients will have to be configured to use it as the default gateway or be configured with static routes with the 2012 server as the gateway for that static route.

Is its just 2 VLAN and the number of clients are not high ,you can use Windows Server without a problem.

I could describe here but will take forever, try this KB from DELL.\

theoretically this is possible with server 2012, however it would require a long explanation. you should be able to install the RRAS role, and use virtual interfaces on each tagged vlan.

see this link to see about setting up tagged vlan adapters.
