Dual NIC pass-through server help please


M

Microsoft

What I am trying to accomplish seems easy, but I am having one hell of a
time figuring out the last step. Here is what I am trying to do.

I have an Internet connection connected to a hardware router. Connected to
the router is a Windows 2000 server AD Domain Controller running DNS for the
domain. The second NIC in this server connects to the rest of the network
on a seperate subnet. I am using 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x.

All of the computers in the 192.168.0.x network see the server on its
192.168.0.125 NIC card. The server sees the router on its 192.168.1.2
network card.

The server connects to the Internet and to the 192.168.0.x network properly.

What I can't figure out how to do is bridge the two network cards in the
server so that Internet requests from the 192.168.0.x subnet get pushed over
to the router on the 192.168.1.x subnet.

I think I am missing something simple and would very much appreciate a
helping hand if anyone has one to lend.

Thanks

You might have better luck posting in the
microsoft.public.win2000.networking group. But from what I know you have to
enable routing between the two nic cards. There is a Internet connection
sharing that you can get to and set most of it up just by clicking on
properties for network places, then click on properties for the card that
has the connection to the router and then click on the sharing tab. Then
there is a settings button that has to be setup. I would suggest reading
more about it on the online help because I think it will setup dhcp and the
default gateway on the network also. Which you may or may not want to do.

Thanks for the reply,

I have indeed tried exactly what you suggested as it seemed the correct plan
to me. Unfortunately I was unable to figure out how to do it. :(

I did indeed post to several groups, including the one you suggested.

Thanks for the reply!

Make sure the gateway of the router is in your server's 192.168.1.125 NIC.
On the 192.168.0.0 network, make sure all those machines are using the NIC
on the server on the 0 NIC as THEIR gateway. Then in your router, create a
Static Route entry telling it how to get to the 192.168.0.0 network by
telling it to use the 192.168.1.125 address. You'll have to check your
router's docs for that or ask your ISP, depending on what sort of agreement
you have with them or if the router belongs to you.

Don't install NAT or domain communication will not work, such as LDAP,
Kerberos and RPC (assuming you're using AD).
