Internet Access

By gsinclair ·
I have a LAN( that currently connects to the Inet via a server using MS Inet sharing(no static ip - DSL connection ).I also have a router already on LAN( I now need to create a more secure LAN and Inet access. I want to deploy a screened host firewall with a packet filter router scenario. I now have a server with 2 NICs and another router with 2 NICs. I was given a class C static IP with def. gateway & DNS adds. from my ISP (DSL connection). I've not been able to get the set-up to work I think I have mis-configured the IP adds. on the devices. I'm not sure at which ends to put what addresses
Can someone help.

What OS is on the Server? What type of 2 NIC router is it? Is this for a business or home office? you mean the DSL router?
Please give a little more details. Mfg and model #'s are a tremendous help.

There are a few ways to secure a network. Software base or hardware base. Meaning you either use ISA Server or hardware like Nokia firewall. With the software ... the computer has to have two NICs and you just setup ISA to forward filtered requests...with basically do the same thing.
