What's best for connecting two logical TCP/IP networks so they can see each other. Bridge? Router? Brouter?

Bridges are used to segregate two networks. Routers are used for the same thing but for more complex network segmentations. A brouter incorporates the bridge and the router because it also forwards non-routable packets from non-routable protocals like netbeui. You are only using tcp/ip and you only have two networks so you would use a bridge.

If the network in running NT 4.0, you can use
your NT server as a router.
1. intall 2 nic cards and configure each card
with each invididual segment information.

2.In the NT TCPIP configuration... enable RIP
(Routing Internet Protocol) You must also install the service in Network services.

This will activate your Multi homed server into a router....
