NT connectivity

By eddie b. ·
I have 3 networks: 158.x.x.0, 172.x.x.0, and 192.x.x.0 populated with Sun and NT computers.
I have an HP Kayak running NT Server 4.0 (Called George), with dual NIC's. One NIC,(adapter 1), is addressed 172.x.x.4, while the other,(adapter 2), is addressed 192.x.x.2. So,George can communicate with 172.x and 192.x networks. The computers in the 172.x.x.0 network can communicate with workstations and pull up internal websites on the 158.x.x.0 network via a 172.x.x.70 gateway. So, in essence, we have the 172.x.x.0 network sitting in the middle of the other 2. What I'm trying to do is configure George (the NT Server) or the NT workstations, so that a user on an NT 4.0 workstation in the 192.x.x.0 network can open a browser and pull up internal websites, or at least be able to telnet into a computer, on the 158.x.x.0 network.
I have enabled IP forwarding on the NT server. what else must I do? Any suggestions/tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Download and install RRAS for NT. Makes for a full NT MPR.

Your workstations need to use George's address on their network as a route. In the simple case you set this as the default gateway in their TCP properties. RRAS does make for better routing than just checking ip forwarding on the server. If you want to access other network's resources by name you will need to point your workstations to an appropriate DNS server too.
