Routing SBS and IP

By softwise ·
Have taken on new site which has major problem with implementing multihomed routing. I have searched Techrepublic answers to this problem but the solutions suggested have either been misunderstood or n/a.
Our situation
1xNic : server and clientscan email and connect to i/net.
2xNic server can email and connect to i/net but clients cannot - familiar scenario I believe.
The multihome server set up: NIC1 internal has server IP address and 255 subnet no gateway,
NIC2 has Router IP as gateway, own address in same range as server, same subnet. IP forwarding on. IP Forwarding at proxy tried on and off.
Clients set with server internal IP as gateway and ISP IP address as DNS address, no fixed IP. Proxy set as I/net connection (Auto doesnot connect either).
Proxy is set with no security, open access etc to try to force connection.
Something is wrong - any suggestions to make this operate?

Routing SBS and IP

by Caper In reply to Routing SBS and IP

I think NIC2 should have an IP not in the same range as server internal NIC (other words a internet routable IP) and IP forwarding turned off at NIC2 and on at NIC1. Give the clients a fixed IP and retain server internal IP as secondary gateway.

Internal network was set to same network net as the router. This meant that we could not go to external net, the system just circulated internally. We changed the internal net addressing, easier than changing Router address although more PCs have to be changed.
Thank you

see above, problem of seeing Router required no gateway on internal card, external card set to same network as the router address given by supplier.
