2K server won’t route 1 xp client to netLocked
I have a school that purchased several XP Pro PC’s and a 2K server. All the PC’s except 1 can access the internet. I can ping 10.1.1.1(private nic) in the server but cannot ping 192.168.2.2(Public nic). All other PC’s can, and all the PC’s are exactly the same(same model, same OS, etc…). All PC IP config is identical except the unique IP of each PC. No DHCP is used. Routing is enabled on the server. The IP config and routing layout is as follows:
XP client with static IP (10.1.1.15)
Nic 1: 10.1.1.1
Nic 2: 192.168.2.2
Server runs SurfControl for internet filtering.
Currently no Firewall software running.
All MS patches installed.
Built in Firewall and NAT enabled.
DHCP is Disabled
Public IP assigned by ISP
OK, the route is:
From XP client(10.1.1.15) to 24 port switch
From switch to 2K Server -Private (10.1.1.1)
From 2K server -Public (192.168.2.2) to Cable router (192.168.2.1)
From Cable Router (Public IP) to cable modem
Cable modem to ISP.
So, why can all PC’s EXCEPT 1 see the Public NIC in the server? I have tried a different IP address too. And diferrent ports on the switch. OH, one thing that is proof that the server is to blame: I can give the PC an IP of 192.168.2.15 and plug it directly into the router’s private side (it has a 4port switch on it) and I can get to the internet, no problem – just bypass the server.
ARRRG! HELP! THANKS!
