  • Static route issues with a server with two external nics

    I am having the same problem but I have 2 external NICs in a server that has 2 different websites and a FTP site.

    Local Lan
    192.168.0.4
    255.255.255.0
    192.168.0.2

    External NIC 1 Web site 1
    66.35.x.66
    255.255.255.x
    66.35.x.65

    External NIC 2 Web site 2/ FTP site
    66.35.x.68
    255.255.255.x
    66.35.x.65

    I tried to use a static route for the LAN NIC using this: route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.2 and then removing the gateway from the NIC properties. This will not work for us due to sending e-mail. The e-mail would not go without the gateway entered on the local NIC.

    Can I use a static route for the external NICs but use the external gateway instead and then blank out the gateway under IP properties? Would I have to bind that route to the external NICs and if so how is that done?

    My guess is to enter it like this: route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 66.35.x.65


    server
    \----local lan---switch---private network
    \----public1---router---public IP
    \----public2---router---public IP

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Next time open you're own thread. I'll report it to split.

    But why are you using 2 nics?
    Why not just one nic with 2 ip addresses?

      Sorry about my post. I remember being flamed for starting a new post on another board when a topic already existed. I guess all boards have different rules.

      I have no idea why anything was done the way it was, I am being thrown into the middle of this as the person before me just walked out. Can a static route fix our problem or should I search for another solution? Thank you.

        just use one nic. This won't go to work.
        about the rules, if you had read the forum rules you would know that thread hijacking is not appreciated.
