Exchange, Proxy,2 Nics all on BDC HELP

By Paul_hughes007 ·
I have a BDC NT4 that has exchange 5.5, Proxy 2 installed I have just changed over from dialup to permanent connection. I have installed second nic into server and connected that to cisco switch. I have connected router also to switch and I am having problems now connecting to both that server and the internet. What am I doing wrong and what should I be aware of. On installing second card I recieved a message regarding default card address and did I want to change it ?? Please Help

it might be that it's looking for the wrong nic. but I would check the config of the ports on the router. The router might be denying access.

Switch config is fine. it is set correctly. Let go back to basics. the server is a bdc how do I set it to accept one nic as default internal network and one nic to be used for connecting exchange/proxy to router. Does both external nic and router need to be connected to switch. second nic has different ip range and subnet to internal network

The message regarding default card address is for Netware IPX/SPX. Unless you have a specific need for IPX to be active remove the protocol and use TCP\IP only especially for the card connected to the router. You may also have to set routing tables to send packets not for your network out to that NIC's IP address. (The routing table on the server may still be set to use the dial-up interface). For help on routing use route /? in a command prompt.

Hope this helps

Chris
