Connecting 2 networks to 1 server

By daniel ·
I have a customer with a Win 2003 server, with 3 nics. One nic is to a secure hotel chain backbone network using a verizon 250k connection. The other 2 nics are disabled. We also have a business highspeed cable connection. Customer complains about the slow speeds and would like me to enable use of our highspeed connection while still remaining connected to the hotel's backbone. How do I set this up?

Configuring NICS

by BFilmFan In reply to Connecting 2 networks to ...

You would need to enable the network interface card and place the IP information to correctly route to the high-speed network.

I would check with the hotel chain as they may well not allow you to have an exposed connection to their network and the Internet.

had already checked with hotel chain

What they said was use 2 nics, one addressed with their IP's and the other with mine, but only their gateway on the server and interface pc. Where I am confused is do I then use my gateway on the user's workstations? If so will they still be able to talk to the server's pms system?

pms system?

Did you access the server over the second nic from your Network or your client?
Is the second nic connected to the main network switch or to an other - and when how?

not connected yet

I havent yet connected the second nic however I am planning on connecting to a separate switch that is connected to my highspeed connection, however that is part of my confusion, do I need to do NAT translation or something to keep the networks together yet separate?
