Using Windows NT router, setup issues.

By rcollyer ·
When using an NT server box as an internal router with two IP segments, what is involved with getting the router to route?
We have two IP segments that don't see each other. (A computer on one segment can't ping a computer on the other segment.) The NT Server is configured with two NIC's, one segment on each, etc. How does one specify the routing?

I can't answer it for you without understanding what you have, but I can tell you that you should have 2 RRAS Servers, one on each side, and the IP of each server, should be the gateway on your route to cross the segments.
Go to my site and read about RRAS a have tons of info with step-by-step and pictures.

You need to make sure that the router (server) is configured to forward traffic between the two subnets. This can be accomplished by implementing IP Forwarding or by using the RIP Routing service. To enable IP Forwarding (static route mapping), right-click on Network Neighborhood and select Properties. Click on the Protocols tab, select TCP/IP and click Properties. Click on the Routing tab and check the box to Enable IP Forwarding, then reboot.

To implement RIP Routing (dynamic route mapping) right-click on NN and select Properties. Click on the Services tab and select Add. Add the RIP Routing service and reboot.

That should fix the problem.

You need to start by assigning an IP address to each NIC on the Server corresponding to the segment that it is plugged into.

Inside Network properties, TCP properties, select the routing tab and make sure that the check box "enable IP forwarding" is enabled.

In your workstations TCP IP properties, make sure that the default gateway points to the NT Server-router NIC on the same segment.
Ie: Workstation of segment 1 default gateway should be the ip address of NT Server-router NIC plugged into segment 1. The same applies for Workstation on Segment 2 etc.

Now, you should be able to ping between the two segments without any problem.

I hope this helps.
