How to use 2 gateways and 1 network card?

bc8
I have a Windows 2003 server with 1 network card (10.0.0.3). I also have 2 different internet providers on 2 gateways(10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2). The server has 10.0.0.1 as its gateway. I have a static external ip address on 10.0.0.2. If I send a ping to the static external address, how can I get the server to reply?

    I don't think that's possible unless you set up port forwarding on the router (10.0.0.2). Basically by pinging the external address you are pinging the interface on the router not the server.

    Also, you will only be able to use one gateway at a time on the server unless you set up HSRP on the two routers that control the internet (if they are Cisco routers that is...)
