Twin NICS, 2 Networks, 1 TCP/IP working

By MoBuc ·
Home Lab of CMPQ DP2000 w/ 128mb RAM, NT 4.0 SP 6 & latest ROMPaqs, 2 Netgear 311 PCI 10/100 NICS hard coded IP, 1 NIC to ea. network: DP2K's BIOS sees both NICS, NTS4 Bind Tab shows IP of 2 different subnets "bind" to NICS (1 ea.);Reboot & NT only sees 1 working IP stack/network. Individually ea. network (Farside or Nearside) will work but- not together. My goal is to install Proxy Server which requires 2 segments or disjoined networks. My Farside is my internet access & not reconfigurable. What may I be over looking in my multi-homed configuration that? I believe RIP would defeat the security aspect of Proxy Server. Thus, is not used. I welcome any ideas. Thanks!

Twin NICS, 2 Networks, 1 TCP/IP working

RAY- U DA MAN! I thought I answered this to you previously but TechRep says it was still open. Anyway, I "accepted" your advice. I didn't do it the way you suggested (It did not become necessary.) but, it put me on the correct trail of the problem. My disabling 1 card, then the other, was merely alternating 1 way traffic. I believe the PnP was binding both to the same communication channels. So, I totaly uninstalled both, & let the Internet side discovery it's port & register it. Then, rebooted & installed the LAN side card, which immediately joined the domain. It was your idea of dissimilar NICs that gave me the idea so- I'll try again to give ya the points Pilgrim ... Or as Elvis would say, "Thank you ... thank you very much"!:-)
