I have 1 pc and with NT installed. My question is how to set 1 nic as primary and the other one as secondary?
This pc act as fire wall & proxy. It will monitor all the pc in network.

Installing 2 NIC On NT Server Pc

Just install the second NIC as you would the first. They will not be refered to as primary and secondary, there will just be two. All screens refering to NIC cards and settings will have a pull down arrow to display the NIC you are attempting to program. Usually one NIC will be used for internet access, like through cable modem, and the other will be your local lan. You can place software router between them. In this case use ISP (usually DHCP) public ip on NIC to cable, and private ip (192.168.0.1) on NIC to lan. Putting two cards in is the easy part, Just set up the firewall on the ISP NIC.

Installing 2 NIC On NT Server Pc

As previously said, just install the second NIC. One of these will be your Internal interface (connected to your Lan), the other your external one.Normaly, the Internal one should be the default IP Gateway for your client commputers, as well (and it will not have a Default Gateway itself!). In the NT Network settings, at TCP/IP it will show two adapters. Some settings are shared by the two (DNS), some are not (IP, WINS,). Make sure you disable the WINS and NetBIOS bindings on the External NIC.Usually, smart firewalls would do that or suggest it to you.
I hope this helps.I'll be happy to assist you further if needed.
Regards,
Radu
