I am trying to setup a Win 2K server as a router. I have a NAS device that holds all my back up’s and I was to connect that via a cross over cable to my Win 2k Server box (the router).
The win 2k server box is also my back-up server and has a VXA device with Back-up exec 8.5 installed. The reason for this is because my network has a high traffic rate and if I connect the NAS device via a cross over cable the back up time would be much less (at the moment it is taking too long). All the other machines on my network need to see the NAS server as files from other machines gets copied to the NAS server.
I have set-up and configured “Routing and remote access. The TCP/IP setting on the NIC for the NAS & the NIC that connects to the NAS are as follows.
To be honest I have completely confused my self and am unsure/changed my mind on how to tackle this.
Does the NIC that connects to the rest of my network need to have a 192.168.X.X address added!?
Rather than admitting what “parp I have defined as a static rule I was wondering if any of you fine people could shed some light as to what the static rule(s) need to suggest and if indeed (quite likely) I have left any massive sections out I need to consider.
Thanks very much for you time and happy new year.
