"Poor man's Router" on NT4 workstation

By falloutboy ·
I have read the articles on using RRAS on NT4 server, but can anything be done for a NT4sp6a workstation with 2 NICs? The machine already runs with 2 3Com 905BTX cards and can access both networks fine, but the cards don't forward. Does RRAS work onNT workstation? Without something extra in software, I can't see there are enough settings options for me to get it going.....The box already runs a proprietary database on it (which is fed data by both networks), so I can't just Linux the box, I need a MS or Shareware/Freeware i386 solution. You might suggest that a DB should be running on NT Server anyway, but my collegues are poorer than Kenny McCormack. I am tempted to grab RRAS for NTServer and just throw it on to see what happens. Any help most appreciated.

You can try installing RIP in the network control panel - services (RIP for Internet Protocol). Then in the properties for the IP protocal, you can enable forwarding (Routing tab, check enable IP forwarding). This should handle it for you. Make sureyou re-install the service pack after doing this.

You don't need to install anything. As long as forwarding is enabled, NT is a static router (not a good one!). The routing itself is up to the routing table (route.exe).
