Using Two NICs

By SD_Giffin ·
In the Windows 95/98 Tech Mail, the topic of using two nics to merge IP networks was covered. In it, they discussed using the ROUTE command.

Would this technique work the same way on a Mixed Version Network (the server is Win2K and the workstations are all either Windows 98 SE or Mac OS 8.1).

I know I could use the built in W2K ICS, but my network is Class A - it uses 10.x.x.x and to use ICS would mean reasigning IPs.

Any assistance here or via email (cyberwizinc@bigfoot.com) would behelpful.

Thanks,

It was a valiant effort though.

The NetSwitcher util doesn't want to work with me. Instead, it flips me the bird saying "Unhandled Exception" then promptly quits all because I click on the "Adapters" drop-down list.

Although it did look promising from the reviews, it was not guaranteed to work under Windows 2000.

So, now my server (my baby) still sits here, assigning class A IPs, unwilling to share it's highspeed connection with the network it's supposed to serve (my other baby).

I'm still listening for ideas though, if anybody has some.

I am a little confused as to what you are trying to do. If you have 2 networks that you are trying to merge with 2 NICs. Do you mean you want to give the 10.x.x.x network access to the internet? You mentioned ICS. Do you have proxy server installed on your server to access the internet. You just have to get the right NIC with the right IP and gateway. Do you have IIS or ISA installed on your server? Personnaly, I like to use e-smith proxy server/gateway. Go to www.e-smith.org to check it out. It works.

I checked it out and it solves a different issue I was having with another LAN in a different area.

I was wanting to give the 10.x.x.x IP network Internet access, and I have resolved the issue with some creative routing. Sorry, I forgot this was still open.
