RAS Server to Proxy Server

By william ·
We have a Windows NT RAS server with 3 Banksia 8 port modem cards attached to it and a network card.

RAS has been setup to allocate the IP addresses 10.0.60.1 thru 10.0.60.254 to the dial-up users.

The network card has the IP address 10.0.0.2 with the subnet mask 255.255.0.0

When a user dials in they are getting the correct IP address but the subnet mask they are being given is 255.0.0.0 which is not correct for our network. How do we fix this?

Once this is fixed will users be able to reach our proxy server on 10.0.0.1?

Please help as this is urgent...

RAS Server to Proxy Server

Hi!

In the DHCP settings for the modem users you'll have to set the subnet mask to 255.255.0.0 in order for them to get it.

1. Change the net mask on the 10.0.0. network (10.0.0.1, 10.0.0.2, etc) to 255.0.0.0 (and on all machines on the 10.0.0. network )-perhaps not an easy task and the broadcast address (10.255.255.255) will make your network slow down a bit.
or:
2.Enable IP Forwarding on the RAS machine (in TCP/IP properties) and set the default gateway to 10.0.0.2 for the RAS connections.
I guess in both cases you should enable IP forwarding on the RAS machine
Hope this helps.
