2 NIC on NT Server & HW Proxy

By Piggy ·
I have a decision to make. I have an old 2baseT (BNC, 50 ohm coax) TCP/IP NT 4.0 network. It works fine. I want to install 3Com Off.Connect 3C891 Proxy/Hub/ISDN card - has no BNC connector! I shall install a second NIC with RJ45/10BaseT/UTP5 and connect it to the 3Com Off.Con.
I'm looking for the safest and cheapest solution!
To have two NIC's on the NT 4.0 server working together I'll assign different IP address and enable routing. What about net browsing?, what about priorities and bindings?
Is there anything else I should do to have people on existing network reach internet via 3Com Proxy?

My personal opinion would be to get rid of the 10Base2 and go to all 10BaseT.
If thats not an option, there are converters that take a 10Base2 to a 10BaseT. I found one for $70 in datacomm warehouse. You could also look on e-bay.
I've never done the routing on NT, but I guess that would work if you had 2 subnets.

Having two NIC Cards in your server (Multihomed) is common. Besides enabling IP routing, make sure each NIC's IP address cross-reference each other. You do this in the TCP/IP Properties|Advance button.
