external static IP & LAN IP

By jonnig ·
I want to setup an application on my server to be accessible from lan as well as external users via ISP provided static IP I have :-
1) 1 Windows 2003 SBS with 2 nics setup on a workgroup
nic1 (external) (external TPLINK nic) for putting static ip
nic2 2) for lan(workgroup),
When I setup both the nics in the following way
nic1:-
IP:- 10.xxx.xxx.83
sb:- 255.255.255.0
def:-10.xxx.xxx.1

DNS:- ISP provided
DNS:- ISP provided
nic2:-

IP:- 192.168.10.3
sb:- 255.255.255.0
def:-

the server is able to access the internet using the router, which is now connected directly to the server. and the application is accessible using the servers LAN IP, however I am not able to access the server over the internet. I can do it if I remove the LAN plug off.

What could be the issue?

Bindings, Router configuration, Firewall, ???

by oldbaritone In reply to external static IP & LAN ...

Sounds like it might be a service binding issue; maybe it's bound to NIC2 but not NIC1. When NIC2 is out, there's only one port to bind, so it gets the right one. Perhaps it's a firewall issue. It might be router configuration issue, but that's less likely.

But there are many settings that might cause the symptoms you describe.

Msybe the Wizard will fix it; if not, there are a lot of places to check.
