Windows 7: Multiple Windows Server 2008 R2

SERVER 2008 R2

if we delete this then what would be the right way to point the internal ( )network the exit path.!!!

  • route add -p mask this was the route you had specified ... i don't know on which interface it should be configured using UI console ... !!!

  1. Another thing in this route is that you are more specific in directing the destination network which gives error when configuring the route through asks for or works normally when i enter the network instead of

The route / / On-link / -- should route packets from network to

"route add -p mask" was just an example, your IP addresses are different

Again, that IP was an IP I gave as an example to ServerA internal interface. You can instead use the network ID as the destination (not the Server IP), which is

I think the problem lies with IP class i am using ... i should change it to 192.168.0.X class more convenient one and less cumbersome in configuration ...
This is not a valid thought. Nothing wrong with using network. You have to understand that IPs/network IDs I use are not necessarily true for your case. Instead try to understand the mentality behind them.

Can you access Internet from ServerB or clients on network B now?

SERVER 2008 R2

i understand that what you are referring to ...

i must also mention here that before turning to static routing option ... i worked on NAT to access the internet from Server B clients you know its a simple set of configurations but again i am unable to do that either. Don't know whats the problem with "routing n remote access services"
. For Your Q?
Still i cant access the network.. i even cant reach the 2nd interface of Server B which has been assigned an automatic IP of by the Server A

SERVER 2008 R2

I must tell you here that i didn't have configure a gateway option on Server B during the configuration of DHCP services and left it blank.... is it appropriate....?

Ok, couple of things:
Change to static IP on ServerB, servers should always have static.
Configure ServerB DHCP to have as gateway. A gateway is where to send the packets when the interface doesn't know the destination network.

Is this a new office or part of it new?

SERVER 2008 R2

I did the following things yesterday...


I succeeded to some extent. now i am able to ping network client from clientof Server B ... but cant ping from ( A client inside Network)......

But i cant access the Internet !!!

1. Introduced the gateway of through DHCP for internal Network clients "Lan1"

2. Gave the static IP of to External OR LAN 2 interface without giving the gateway.

3. I linked LAN2 to the public interface ( network) to connect to the internet

After NAT configuration .......
I succeeded i can ping both the network clients, Server A itself and also can access internet beyond the Server A Network from Server B clients and Network

Sever B Client ipconfig statistics:

Ip = (Assigned by DHCP)
Everything is working alright with these settings.

At the moment I have set aside the Static routing option .....

My Q is ......

How would i be able now to access the Network from ?
Do i have to go for static routing option or just modify the existing configuration i have stated above?

You can't ping individual computers behind a NAT unless you forward ports to them. Maybe 1 or 2 servers but for an entire segment this is infeasible. Also not a very good practice to NAT internally. The method below will achieve what you want with routing LAN networks.

Simple Diagram:
Multiple Windows Server 2008 R2-00-network-map.jpg

I started with changing Network Interface names to more meaningful ones:
On ServerA: Internet and Network172
On ServerB: Network172 and Network10

All interfaces are configured with static IPs, it goes as:
ServerA - Internet: / - Gateway: - DNS Servers: nothing set
ServerA - Network172: / - Gateway: nothing set - DNS servers: (since you have AD on ServerB, I guess your DNS is there too)
ServerB - Network172: / - Gateway: - DNS Servers:
ServerB - Network10: / - Gateway: nothing set - DNS Servers:

Due to the nature of TCP/IP setup on internal interfaces, they were set as "Unidentified Networks", and had to resort to Group Policy to designate them as Private. (Skip if yours are already private). Open Group Policy (run "mmc" and add snap-in for Group Policy Object)

Install Routing and Remote Access on both servers (if not already), both servers will be configured as "Routers" for LAN routing only.

Configure ServerA Internet interface as NAT: Right click General for ServerA and "New Routing Protocol" and select NAT from the list. A NAT entry will show under IPv4, right click and "New Interface", select Internet (this is the name I gave earlier for ServerA outer interface, from the list.

Add Static Route for segment Under ServerA IPv4 list, right click "Static Routes" - "New Static Route" as below:

RRAS: Nothing special needed, everything is default.
DNS: Your DNS should already have forwarders enabled for any non-authoritative name resolution. To test things; I had to create a forward lookup zone (called it "internal") that forwards to root servers. It is listening on both and

Client PC on Network (Yours should be automatic and configured with DHCP):

Hopefully, I have not left out anything. Windows Firewall is off for both Servers and the client PC! You will have to open proper ports/allow programs etc.

To add: I have shared a folder on both Servers and client PC can access both by entering DNS name, browsing can only see ServerB as ServerA is on a different segment (it does show with DNS name after accessing from address bar). (You can also use Distributed File System -DFS- for shares if so needed).
