NT routing troubles

By razorren ·
I have a NT4 server with 2 ethernet cards attached to a cable modem. I turned IP fowarding on but I can't ping out to the internet from another machine on my lan. I also have the ip address for my NT server as my default gateway on the win9x machine. Any suggestions, do I need RRAS ?

You also need to set a static route entry,
to actually configure a route, you use the route command, for example to configure a root for network 200.200.199 to use router 200.200.200.2 you would type

route -p add 200.200.199.0 mask 255.255.255.0200.200.200.2

The -p makes the addition permanent, otherwise it will be lost with a reboot.

To view your existing information type route print.


Hope this helps.

Nope. The problem is likely that your PING is transmitted OK, but cannot return because the PING target does not know how to direct the return packet. (Do you have all your machines in DNS?)

Otherwise look at ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) in W98, W2000Pro, or some sort of Proxy product to share connectivity.
