  • One PC to two subnets, forcing an application onto a subnet

    Hey guys,

    There was a similar post in here 2 years ago, but I thought I might end up hi-jacking it if I posted there..


    OK, so we've got this old heap of crap P4 with 1gb RAM and 320GB Disk.
    It has XP Pro on SP3 and 2x NICs installed.

    We want to set it up as the office music / downloads (legal stuff like SPs and whatnot) box.
    We have two subnets, which it simultaneously runs on atm, one for downloading and one on the internal network.
    (Download network is slightly slower speed, but more downloads /month, internal network is less downloads, but higher bandwidth)

    We need to connect to the internal network, cos all of the music is on the server.

    What I wanna know, is whether it's possible to force everything through the download network, but still allow the PC to map a drive to the internal network by itself???

    Hope that is clear enough..

    And yeah, i've searched Google for the last 30 mins or so, couldn't figure out a decent search string though..

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    You wouldn't be able to post there anyway if the thread is closed so it would technically be a "platonic hijack"

    OK, so we've got this old heap of crap P4 with 1gb RAM and 320GB Disk.

    With that comment you made me rethink my hardware retension strategy. I'll definitely have to get rid of those PII now.

    Ok back on track now, what subnets are you using? And are you runing AD?

      Remove Default Gateway on the Internal NIC.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

        What type of firewall do you have???

        You could, if your firewall supports it, connect both WAN connections to the firewall and route traffic from that PC only via that WAN connection.
