Ok this may be alot to take it at first, but stay with it...
I am head of IT at a community centre, and i want to set up DHCP role on a Windows server 2008 32bit Server. The server currently has 1 static ip, and gets it's internet from a standard router, and lets say that is adapter 1.
I have installed another network card in it, which i intend to provide and connection for all the client PC's, which are running off a switch. The DHCP going from adapter 2 i want to have a different subnet. So this is how it currently looks...
IP address: 192.168.1.19
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.254
IP address: 172.25.16.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.252.0
Default Gateway: 172.25.16.1
All i want adapter 1 to do, is supply the server, and the clients running off adapter 2, a internet connection. The way i thought to do this is to share the connection from adapter 1 to adapter 2, but after a bit of research, it turns out you cannot share a internet connection under the same subnet.
So, is there a way to get a internet connection to adapter 2 for the clients? Effectively, the network will have 2 DHCP servers, the server, and the router. I want the client PC's to not know about the router, and have their IP addresses and Internet come "from the server".
Ok it's a bit long winded, but i think i explained well enough, help will be grately appreciated!
