Internet Access

Hello,

How do I setup my Netware server to route for Internet Traffic.

I have:

NIC with private IP address (the network my PC's and other servers access server with)

NIC with public IP address from my ISP (AT&T T1)

2nd Netware server assigning IP's with DHCP

I'd like to give the PC's access to the Internet without using anything like Bordermanager - just a straight shot out of the network for my PC's and other servers.

Thanks.

Just set up dynamic NAT in INETCFG.

Re: Internet Access

Thanks for the quick response!

Are there any other settings to adjust?

Will this affect my Static NAT settings?

Just change NAT in INETCFG from "STATIC" to "STATIC and DYNAMIC"

Re: Internet Access

I've made the change and re-initialized the system and I can still only access the Internet through my BM proxy server... am I missing a step?

Hard to say. You have activated dynamic NAT? CAn you ping the router that
connects you to the internet from your PC?

You might also try a TCPIP DEBUG (see the knowledgebase) to verify that
NAT is eally taking place.

Re: Internet Access

Hey - Thanks for your help... I think I've got it...

The workstation I'm testing this on did not have the correct DNS address in the TCP/IP config... I guest the proxy has allowed it to work in the past, but I figured out my workstation couldn't resolve DNS names and then it all came together...

Again - thanks!
