Paul your link doesn't work.

vijay chandra you mention a server and a workstation and nlb.

but you mention nothing about clustering the server. Perhaps a bit more time understand NLB is in order for you?

If you are running Active Dictory your dns config for server does not conform to proper AD configuration.

You still haven't figured this issue out yet? We are dealing with two isps right? One fast and one slow.

You completely misunderstand what NLB is. Does not pertain to "balancing" internet connections. That was guapo's suggestion of a dual wan port router which has the ability to balance or failover built into it.

Without going thru all of your previous posts on the subject, did you receive the advice of manually configuring the pcs to use one getway or the other once you have set the lan scope on the two routers to be in the same subnet?

PS the ip config for your server is wrong. It should be like the workstation and not pointing to the internet dns servers.

"can i configure both of this as a gateway of server?"

I suspect you mean can you configure the server to use both gateways.

Unfortunately the answer is no. Though you can put in two nics, each having a different gateway Windows will only use the one it thinks is the fastest.

ya two NIC i know.....k now tell me than whats the use of NLB...according to me its used for two lines that if traffic is high on one line than it can be routed on other line also if one line fails than all traffic can be transmitted to the working line....

NLB as per the link Paul gave you has nothing to do with what you want to accomplish.

"if one line fails than all traffic can be transmitted to the working line"
this is what a dual wan port router does which is why it was suggested at the beginning of the discussion.

But all is not lost.

ISP 1 router IP is 192.168.10.10
and
ISP 2 router is 192.168.10.254

Now that you have both routers lan in the same subnet

[usually recommend .1 and .2 or .254 and .253 so you don't lose so many ips if using dhcp]

You can do a mixture of static and dhcp ip to spread the internet load manually over the two links.

Decide what devices you want on one link and what devices you want on the other link. Which ever pool is smaller you assign static ips. The rest would use dhcp. You first document your ip plan. For example;

192.168.10.1-2 routers
192.168.10.11-150 static ips using gateway1
192.168.10.151-250 dhcp ips using gateway2
192.168.10.251-254 static assignments for printers with no gateway

adjust the ip ranges as you desire.

Hope this helps

Not wise to use public ip internally. Hackers love that sort of stuff

depends on how you implemented "use public IP inside my private lan"

these cameras off a switch before the router?
do they use wiring/switch that is also used by the intrAnet?

There was a case where a hospital had xray and mri equipment that contained hard drives. These machines were hacked and their hard drives used for botnet storage. It was very difficult to get rid of since taking the machines off line for any time cost huge amounts of money.

consider putting the cameras on a separate network than the intranet.
