Can Windows NTServer 4.0 be used as a ga

By pickensw ·
We are using Server 4.0 on a local network. Three machines access this as a file server. The machine has 2 NIC cards one is a thin net (BNC) the other is a RJ45 NIC that is used for internet access. From the server I can see the whole network (including the local network) but from the three machines on the local network I can only see them and the server. They will not see the whole network. I know that installing a mini hub would take care of it but they want access now. (no money until the 1st of theyear) Can anyone help.

Thanks
Will

I'd suggest checking out an inexpensive package called Wingate. I've seen this used at small businesses before (though my own preference is for an Ascend router at the front of the network) and it does the job nicely. You mention 3 workstations, which would fit nicely in Wingate's pricing scheme for their Standard small business package, priced at $80. Wingate acts as a proxy server for a multitude of traffic types, including Telnet, VDOLive, RealAudio, WWW of course, and others. Their website is www.wingate.com.

Hi Will,

Just to let you know, I agree with the answer regarding Wingate. I am currently testing Beta 3.1, and find it to be a great program.

Wingate has known security flaws which could allow hackers to steal your private info, use your server for attacks on other internet sites, etc.

I suggest Sygate, found at www.sygate.com

These solutions assume you only have one valid Internetaddress. If your ISP has given you enough valid, routable IP addresses for the server and all clients, you could just open TCP/IP properties on the server and check the box to enable routing. This turns your NT server into a mini-router.

Doing the above exposes both the server and the client machines to any number of security risks from the internet, however.

I used MS Proxy Server 2.0 to achieve this. I'll admit up front that you need to review the security on your server and clients and monitor the net for new security holes in Proxy Server. As is nexessary for all products. Having said that, it works well as a gateway for companies tied to the MS product range. We had Wingate earlier, but security and lack of scalability led us to try Proxy Server.

All three workstations must have the IP Address of the router in the default gateway entry and the and the route IP box selected in the routing tab.
