|I have a small network of 6 PCs running XP SP3 and a server running Server 2003 SP2. I need to have a file server, user management (so domain based configuration) with Internet access in all clients.|
My ISP gives me a direct ethernet cable based connection with a fixed IP address, only through which I can access the Internet.
This means that I cannot connect the Internet connection to the switch.
Following are the details:
Default Gateway: 172.16.96.1
(I need to log on with a password either using http interface or a software)
My computer vendor tried with ICS but knew ICs cannot work on a domabin-based configuration I tried NAT myself, but I cannot get it working properly.
What is the best way to configure this network? If possible I prefer not to install additional router, but I can if it can provide a robust and secure system.
