Hello, I feel like such a newb asking this, but I am stumped. I am currently using a win2k server to attempt to connect an external public network (cable internet) to an internal network. the following are the steps taken already:
1. setup NIC #1 for access to external public network
2. setup NIC #2 for access to internal private network with IP of
3. setup routning and remote access with following:
- gateway set to
- router set to
- NAT setup to resolve IPs and grant IPs through DHCP/DNS
4. install and setup DNS
5. went to all client machines and set NICs to DHCP and resolved with correct ip information (ie:

here is the problem... I can currently access the internet via the main routing server. However, any other machine on my network cannot access the internet. They can see all of the other units on the network, and ping all of the internal clients, but they cannot load internet pages. The bottleneck seems to be something I setup either incorrectly, or not at all on the main routing server.

you may not have the NAT setup correctly. try to disable and re-enable the NAT. By default, that should let inside computers access the internet. for more details, check this page, http://www.howtonetworking.com/nat.htm
