|Thanks for both responses. Re: bridging, it is not available on Win2K, but I suspect that enabling routing on the machine does the same thing. See http://www.petri.co.il/configuring_...|
Note that the author leaves out an important point, namely that on the multihomed computer, there can only be one gateway. That's why the 7.1 nic has no gateway defined and the 1.49 nic does have the 1.1 gateway specified. Also, I don' t think he's all that clear that 7.1 should be the gateway specified on all other machines on that subnet, just as 1.1 is the gateway for all machines on the 1.0 subnet.
Re: why I'm using this configuration: yes, the gateway has 4 ports and wireless, but my second subnet is physically on the other side of the building and I don't want to wire it. The 192.168.7.0 subnet has a Video Server hooked up to the hub I mentioned and must be present in that location (video feeds). The video server has FTP capability, but obviously cannot make it through the internet, considering another pc on the same subnet/hub can't browse the internet either. As far as ICS, I don't think that is the solution. It seems to me that ICS is for a pc connected to a modem and essentially makes the pc a router, distributing addresses via dhcp, etc. My Gateway is already the internet router.
From what I've read, enabling routing, as in the link above, makes my multihomed pc an rras router. It appears to be working because, per my trace, it went all the way from the 7.10 machine to the multihomed machine (7.1 to 1.49) to the gateway/router (1.1). Doesn't this sound like my setup (away from the gateway/router) is working as it should? The gateway/router appears to be dropping the packet, either after it gets there or on the way back from a response on the internet. Doesn't this appear to be a Gateway/Router problem?
What can I look at on the gateway that will help me figure out what's happening to this traffic?
Again, thanks for showing interest in helping me solve my problem.
