One PC Accessing Two Subnets?

I have two networks, one run with a 2003 server and one with a 2000 server.

2003 server on 172. and 2000 on 192.

The 2003 server connects to all the main PCs on the network and does DHCP and is a domain controller. It also is the internet gateway and routing and remote access is enabled.

The 2000 server hosts an SQL server and is attached to machinery out in the factory.

One of the PCs on the network 172 needs to communicate with the 192 subnet so that it can control the machinery out in the factory. However, it needs to also be a part of the 172 network so that it can access all of the 'work information'.

Any way to do this?

(btw, sorry if I didn't get some of the terms correct)

I'm a network man. Please pardon me If I get some of the systems terms and concepts wrong.

Have you tried a ping from the PC to the server in 192 subnet? If it works, then the network is fine. System-wise... :)

I see you're running private addresses (192.168 and 172.16)... I'm not sure what the router does to private addresses trying to go out of the network. I've thought of something though. Maybe you can install another NIC on the PC that needs both networks, one NIC connects to 192 and one connects to 172.

Then again, I'm not sure how the domain controllers will work this out. :) Interesting.

Hello there crystalv,

I would like to ask you a question.
Are you getting paid to maintain these servers / networks?

I am getting paid, so never mind.

Sorry, I guess I didn't read the TOS closely enough!
