Configuring ISDN - LAN Connect

By arehman2 ·
We have a Cisco 766 ISDN Router.

IPs are 213.42.103.144-151
subnet:255.255.255.248

need to know >>>
1. HOW to connect ROUTER to SWITCH/ SERVER.?
2. What IPs cannot be used, eg. the first IP goes to Network ID, etc
3. What IP should be given to ROUTER and SERVER.

We have a Windows environment.

thanks.

213.42.103.144 is your "network", and cannot be used for anything.
213.42.103.151 is the "broadcast" address, and canot be used for anything.
You can use the addresses 213.42.103.145 through 213.42.103.150 for anything on your segment, in any order you want. (Unless you've been told otherwise by your corporate types...)

Typically the Ethernet interface on your router is given either the first AVAILABLE address (either 213.42.103.145 or 213.42.103.150) with the other 5 addresses being used for your PCs, servers, etc.

I agree with the previous post as to the use of your IP addresses. You also asked about connecting the router to a switch or the server. You can connect your router either to a switch or hub, or directly to a second NIC card in the server itself.It depends largely on where your firewall or proxy is and how you want to configure it. If you have a software firewall or proxy software on the server (such as MS Proxy Server), it's easiest to put a second NIC in your server and connect that directly to the router. That way, you can use only two public IP addresses (one on the server's second NIC and one on the router), and have you workstations using private IP addresses on your internal LAN. If you are going to have all workstations using public IP addresses, or if your router will be acting as a firewall and/or running NAT, you can connect the router to any hub or switch on your network. Hope this helps!
