Domain Network, Public Network Problem
I Have a problem with Windows Server 2008 Networking. Basically I have my server configured with 2 NICs one for Lan & one for Internet (WAN). The problem I have is that they have both joined the same network location (Domain Network) but obviously this isnt correct what I want to achieve is to have the LAN as domain network and WAN as Public Network As you will see from this screenshot it has both NICs currently in the domain network next to test.local http://www.nizzy.co.uk/problem.jpg I Want One in Domain Network & the other in Public Network The main problem is that because they have joined the same network location Incoming SMTP Stops working as soon as I configure RRAS which is a major problem for me. Any Help Appreciated. I Have been advised not to do this but i cant help but think this is the way i had my SBS box and my 2003 Server configured and they worked fine.

How does your IP-settings look like? What's the IP for each NIC? You'll need one internal and one external, on different networks for routing to work. I would not recommend connecting it directly to the internet so a router / firewall in between would be good. But in that case you could configure your router/ firewall to just forward incoming smtp to the internal ip.

I Have one internal and one external plugged into a netgear router. Ip Address LAN = 192.10.x.x IP Address WAN = 192.168.x.x i have configured all port forwarding to the WAN ip address but if i get RRAS working smtp stops working and if i disable RRAS SMTP starts working??

well i have managed to figure it out it relates to the fact that my internal IP address was being detected as an external ip address i have changed and everything seems to be working great
