Simple Network Question!

By mak15 ·
Hi,

Recently, I installed a Cable Modem, and have a NT2000 server. Two questions, If from clients, I don't want to connect through Server, In this case, I must have a router between the modem and hub to do so(except IP Routing)? Because I really don't want to share internet connection with other computer.
If I connect the router to a EthernetCard1 in server, then from EthernetCard2 in server to a hub, and spread out to other clients. My question is how do I configure the router from my Server? Or there are some easier way to do so?
Please, give me some suggestions or recommand me some sites to learn about it. Thanks!

Regards,
Henry

For card2 you have to given card1's ip address as default gateway. for all other machines u have to specify card2's ip address as default gateway. Also on the server you will have to install RIP service to make this thing work.

Make one card?s default gateway, the ip address of the other. The install a new NT service: R.I.P. .
All ip address in your side must be in the same subnet!!!

Good luck!

If you wish to configure your router from a server you can try telnet if you have set the router up already. Otherwise use software supplied with router and a laptop

I have exactly this setup at home. The card1 in the server is set up to automatically receive it's IP address, gateway, DNS settings from the ISP. In the network properties of this network connection, select the sharing tab, and select Enable Internet Connection Sharing. On card2, set the IP address as 192.168.0.1. On the other computers in the network, set the IP address as 192.168.0.x where x is greater than 1, less than 255. Set the gateway address to 192.168.0.1 on all these computers. After the client computers have been reset, you should be able to ping the local IP addresses, the gateway (192.168.0.1) address, the IP address of card1 in the server (locate by type IPCONFIG /ALL at command prompt at server), and any other known public IP address. You might have to fill in the DNS addresses on the clients in order to get full functionality. I've used this setup for several months, and haven't found any application that cannot connect to the internet from the clients. Goodluck!
