Microsoft Proxy/NT Configuration

By keatingj ·
i would like to have a really good example of configuring a NT Server Box with two NIC cards to be a proxy server. Issue 1: The real IP address 198.x.x.x assigned to NIC 1 must be able to communitcate with three servers and a WAN that does not reside behind the proxy. The second NIC with the IP range of 10.x.x.x will be used for client machines. The clients must be capable of logging into an Exchange server residing above the proxy as well as receiving the login information from a PDC. Problems: Not sure if WINS is an issue here. NIC 1 has the real IP address and the gateway. NIC 2 uses 10.x.x.1 and has no default gateway. When I install the proxy client on a client machine I do not get NT login validation. I am able to surf the web so proxy appears to be routing web pages but not network browse functions. If anyone has some advice on directions or needs further information to provide an accurate response please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Microsoft Proxy/NT Configuration

The problem is that the proxy server only service three things: web requests, winsock requests, and sock requests. It does not proxy Microsoft networking. However, to solve your problem, do the following:

1) Enable IP forwarding on the proxy server. Open the properties for Network Neighborhood and on the last tab, check the "Enable IP Forwarding" check box.

2) Install WINS service on the proxy server.

Couple of notes: configuring lmhosts will only give you access across the proxy server but will not allow for browsing functions. You must install WINS. And secondly, if you want to secure the network behind the proxy, you must use a firewall. The Microsoft Proxy will not secure your LAN.
