Configure 2 network cards Windows Server 2008

Specs: Windows Server 2008, AMD x6 / 4 Gb
Hello there,
I hope i can make my self clear and someone can explain me what is the problem.

First network card have the static IP address 82.x.x.30 from the ISP.
The second network card have 2 IP addresses: 192.x.x.0 and 82.x.x.1 ( first IP is for LAN and second IP is for routing the additional IP class).

In other words if i have the computer "Z" with configuration: IP: 82.x.x.100 Sub: and GTW: 82.x.x.1 i can access the internet but practically with with the IP from ISP wich is 82.x.x.30

Best regards,

Windows doesn't do well with dual NICs. Either way, where did you get the 82.x.x.1 for the second NIC? The server already has 82.x.x.30 Why should it have two external IP addresses?

Secondly, why don't you want the server NATed & use port forwarding instead, if needed?

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

The second IP: 82.x.x.1 is routed through 82.x.x.30
They are not in the same class

Server works great with dual nics if you understand how to set them up. It's workstations that have the issue with being multihomed and even then its not a problem using ICS.

Iuliu you might want to review your tcp/ip course work.

You can NOT do this:
"192.x.x.0 and 82.x.x.1 "

You can not have the 82x subnet on both interfaces or no routing can take place.

To route you have to engage RRAS. Google it for the step by step setup.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
