3G sharing with ethernet and some type of virtual router
Let me first start off by saying, My overall goal is to share my 3g connection with a LAN Card. Sounds simple right? not in my setup...
Let me explain, I have a 3g modem that is plugged into a rack mount server. That server has 2 Ethernet cards in it (1 built in, the other pci). I also have a Cisco Dual Wan Router. The first ethernet card in it going to one of the WAN ports of the router, and the 2nd is connected to a LAN port of the router. That is the hardware setup. Now, I need help with the software portion of my setup...
I want to forward everything from my 3g connection to the first ethernet card (the one plugged into the WAN Port) while being totally separate/isolated from everything else, including the 2nd Ethernet card on the LAN side. Why? So that I can use 3g with my dual wan router as a backup, and still be able to use the server normally with the other computers running on my network. In other words I need to be able to access Network Shares, NAS, UPNP shares, etc. all on the rack mount server. I have tried Internet connection sharing and that causes some looping issues. I also found out that the Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Driver should work, but all I could find is how to use it to share WiFi and not Ethernet. I have also tried Nat32, and I couldn't quite figure it out. So, is there some sort of software router that I can use to share 3g and ethernet that is isolated from my other ethernet card? I also don't mind paying for a program as long as it works and isn't extremely expensive. I also wanted to ask is there some sort of way I can use microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter to use ethernet instead of wifi, because that looks like it might work. Anyway, I really need help with this and to all who help me Big Thanks in advance.
