  • A Server, 2 nics, 2 subnets, why can the router supply dhcp to the 2nd subnet?

    I had a server i was working on, sms 2000, so it had 2 nics and each nic was on a different subnet.

    The router was set to supply dhcp.in the range 192.168.1.100 --->192.168.1.150

    Now i didn't check any settings in the server i.e, dns dhcp etc....so i don't know how it was setup. Also i am still a bit amateur at the whole thing.

    The router was plugged direct into the server("WAN nic") and the server plugged into the switch("LAN nic") and obviously all the workstations plugged into the switch.

    So the "wan nic" was set to auto assign an ip in tcp/ip settings, and was given an ip by the router of 192.168.1.100, dg=192.168.1.1.

    The "LAN nic" was set a static ip in tcp/ip of 192.168.16.2, dg=192.168.1.1, dns = 192.168.1.1.

    These are all the settings i know.

    1) Does the dhcp on the router supply the 192.168.16.xxx subnet OR does the server do this OR has the server been configured so that the router can "get onto" the 192.168.16.xxx" subnet to supply it was dhcp ips becasuse as far as i know the router would need to have static or dynamic route knowledge, like RIP, to do this, or am i way off the mark.

    Well now that i think about it the server must have configured to supply dhcp to the 192.168.16 subnet as the router dhcp is just working in 192.168.1 hmmmm

    So how would dns have been setup for this, anyone come across this kind of setup?

      Do you mean SMS 2000 or SBS 2000? (Note for me, SBS 2000 with ISA 2000 installed)
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.

        small business server 2000.

        I worked it out. Quite simple really.

          Care to share your solution for others who may read the thread also having the same problem?

          Moved to the SBS Forum.
