Hello, I have a W2K Advance Server using a router with the following informatipon provided, the one board NIC is conected to a router which I can connet to the internet, the clients cannot: On board NIC: Connection Specific DNS: swbell.net DCHP Enabled: Yes Autoconfiguration Enabled: Yes IP Address 192.168.1.100 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway 192.168.1.1 DHCP Server 192.168.1.1 DNS Servers 151.164.11.201 192.168.201.2 151.164.73.201 Primary Wins Server 151.164.73.201 NIC To The Clients: Connection Specific DNS: apolloheightsbaptistchurch.org DCHP Enabled: No Autoconfiguration Enabled: Yes IP Address 192.168201.2 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.192 Default Gateway DHCP Server 192.168.2012 DNS Servers 151.164.11.201 192.168.201.2 151.164.73.201 Primary Wins Server 151.164.73.201 Secondary Wins Server 151.164.11.201 The W2K server will connect tot he internet, the clients cannot connect to the internet nor can I ping any know host from the client side. Clients are configured to obtain an IP Address automatically, this infor mation form a client is provided: Connection Specific: apolloheihgtsbaptistchurch.org IP Address: 192.168.201.12 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.192 Gateway: 192.168.201.1 The onboard nic is behind a router, no problems here. The 2d NIC connects to a hub to distrubte the IP addresses. Any help to resolve this problem is greatly apprciated, this issue is driving me crazy. thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I see a couple of items:

Server NIC to clients:
IP Address 192.168.201.2
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.192 <- you have address space for 63 clients
Default Gateway <- Set this default gateway to the other NIC provided you have routing enabled on this server.
DHCP Server 192.168.201.2 <- not needed on this NIC as it should be a static address; unless you have a reservation in DHCP
Primary Wins Server 151.164.73.201 <- this is not the WINS server for your network, it should be this server providing WINS services if needed
Secondary Wins Server 151.164.11.201 <- see note above

=========================================
Enabling IP Routing

By default, IP routing is disabled. To enable IP routing, you must allow the computer to
forward IP packets it receives. This requires a change to the Windows 2000 system registry.
When you enable the Routing and Remote Access service for IP routing,
this registry entry is made automatically.

To enable IP routing

1. From the Start menu, click Run.
2. Type regedt32.exe or regedit.exe, and then click OK.
3.In a registry editor, navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip \Parameters
4. Select the “IPEnableRouter” entry (by defining as value : 1 )
5. To enable IP routing for all network connections installed and used by this computer, assign a value of 1.
To do this in regedit.exe, right-click the entry, and then click Modify.
In regedt32.exe, click on the wanted entry, click on Edit, and then click on the appropriate menu choice.
6.Close the registry editor.

It is required to reboot Windows 2000 for this change to take effect.

Another method is:
Open “Routing and Remote Access” on the server. In the console tree, right-click the server you want to enable, and then click Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access. Follow the instructions in the Routing and Remote Access wizard.
