To provide Internet connectivity to my network user or users

Specs: Windows Server 2008 R2
Dear

I'm using OS Windows Server 2008 R2 and have Internet connectivity. I want to provide Internet connectivity to my user or users through my Server. We are within same network. I know that, in order to do so two (2) LAN cards are required in Server.

Is there any other option to provide Internet connectivity? For example, by drive mapping of the user or anything else.

Please help with the solution.

Regards

Your question is unclear. Drive mapping have nothing to do with internet access.

Why do you want to provide internet thru the server vs the users going direct to the router and internet?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

You can provide Internet access by doing configuration of proxy server.

Sure. You enable RRAS on the server so routing takes place between the two nics. You install and configure a proxy server of your choice. Clients use the serves lan nic ip as gatway which is best set using the servers dhcp server.

I agree with #3, however, I don't think that using a server to act as an internet router is the best method to share your internet unless you are attempting to monitor or police traffic. Depending on your the size of your network and your needs from a router, you could get away with using a cheap router instead.
