  • Duali Nic's

    I have a PC connected to the internet on a completeley different network to my local LAN. Is it possible to bung another network card into the PC, give it a local IP & access files on the local network or will I need to do something else to get both networks seeing each other?

    Essentially yes, just be careful with default gateways.

    Begs the question why?

      Re: Dual Nic's

      We receive emails from a client which are encrypted using a digital outlook certificate. For some reason something is happening to the encryption certificate on each emails making the signature invalid. I traced this back to out email service provider.

      Until I can get to the bottom of this as a work around I set a PC up with a pop email account going through a different service provider (different ADSL line) & set the encryption certificate up on this machine so we could still be able to send / receive emails.

      So the emails are now being received outside of our LAN and I wanted a way of copying the emails onto the network.

      My thought was to put x2 network cards in the PC to get it talking to both networks but Im not having much luck. Heres MY details


      NIC1 internet access

      IP: 62.3.211.190
      MASK: 255.255.255.248
      GAT: 62.3.211.186
      DNS1: 212.139.132.5
      DNS2: 212.139.132.22


      NIC2 LAN

      IP: 192.168.2.82
      MASK: 255.255.252.0
      GAT: 192.168.2.58
      DNS1: 192.168.2.4
      DNS2: 192.168.2.5

      Anyone know how to get this working?

        Remove the gateway from the LAN NiC

          The config I currently have is:


          NIC1 internet access

          IP: 62.3.211.190
          MASK: 255.255.255.248
          GAT: 62.3.211.186
          DNS1: 212.139.132.5
          DNS2: 212.139.132.22


          NIC2 LAN

          IP: 192.168.2.82
          MASK: 255.255.252.0
          GAT: none
          DNS1: none
          DNS2: none


          The problem Im having is I cant see anything on the 192.168.xxx.xxx network range.

            I've finally managed to get it working. I had plugged the network cable on NIC2 into a faulty port on the switch which is why it wouldnt work.

            Its now working like a dream.



            Thanks

              Well done!
              Amazing how often software problems become HW ones

              btw, you will probably need to restore the DNS server (internal ones) on Nic2
