my server has two nics because i have multiple networks, and so i have multiple subnets (four, my subnet mask is 255.255.255.192 /26)
anyway, what i am trying to ask is if the following is even possible...
my router is on my first subnet and is set to 192.168.0.3. my server's first nic is 192.168.0.2, with a gateway of 192.168.0.3. my server's second nic is set to 192.168.0.129, with a gateway of 192.168.0.2.
one of my desktops is set by DCHP to 192.168.0.130 with a gateway of 192.168.0.129.
so, in theory, my desktop should access the internet by routing completely through the server like so:
it sends a request through its gateway (192.168.0.129) which is the servers second nic. the second nic then sends the request to its gateway (192.168.0.2) which is the first nic on the server. then that nic sends the request to the router (192.168.0.3) which then retrieves the desired information, and relays it back.
so far i can't get this to work. Will it even work?
if not, is there some other way i can route all internet requests through the server?
