Having two network cards

By ann ·
I have two network cards in my server. I have two segments, the main office on one network card and the studio on another network card.

How can set the pc's up to view shared foldes on both segments,thus studio shared folders can be viewed and accessed by PC's in the main office and vice versa.

You don't mention what OS.
If the computer with the 2 NICs has Windows 2000/NT/XP you just have to enable IP Forwarding. then use route add on each workstation on either side of the computer that has the 2 NICs.

If you are using Windows NT or 2000 you can set your server to act as a router, allowing both segments to 'see' each other. You may need to use the ROUTE command to enable routing, but it is not really complicated and is a lot cheaper than buying routing softeare or a dedicated router.
