Win2k Network Advice

By clegge ·
I have a windows 2k server at home i would like to use 2 network cards. Card A would be DHCP recieving the address from my Linksys Router (the router is connected to my cable modem) through an 8 port hub. Network Card 2 would hold static ip addressfor the websites that i am holding on the server and are viewed by other clients off of the before mentioned hub( which are dhcp clients and capable of surfing the outside net via the cable modem). How would i do this. If it is not possible how would i be able to accomplish having the other machines off my network view the web pages on my server yet still be able to surf the net...

Sorry if this is confusing

What you need to do is set up NAT (Network Address Translation) on the w2k server. Have each of the clients using the IP address of network card 2 as their default gateway.

Next, you'll need to create a static route on network card 1 to the IP addresses and ports of the websites you host. I'm presuming these are on a server with a static IP address. If not, then you will need to make it static.

Obviously it goes without saying you'll need a reserved IP range on your DHCP server (10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, etc).

Hope this helps!
