More than one external IP address...

By josh ·
I have a block of static IP addresses. Inside my network, I have two computers which will need their own external IP addresses. I would like to give each server their own external IP address, then, get all the client boxes all lumped onto their own external IP. Is this possible? If so, how? Clients are running both XP Home and Pro, the servers are Adv. Server 2000.

Simple answer is YES. it's possible. It's how whole world lives with the Internet :-)

All you need to do - create a static NAT (Network Address Translations) between inside IP addresses, and public IP addresses. Also you will need to create certain rules on your router or firewall, permitting certain type of traffic, and blocking the rest.

Specific recommendations will depend on what type of equipment you have between the Internet and your LAN - firewall, router, security appliance, do you need to put these servers into the DMZ or you OK to have them inside your LAN, what type of traffic should be permitted, etc.

Good luck,
