Windows server 2000 w/ 2 nic cards problem

  1. Straight forward question here..

    I have a Windows server 2000 machine that I want to use as a PDC and internet gateway machine.. It has 2 nic cards in the machine.. How do I tell Windows which one is for internet access?

    When I try to get on the internet from the server machine it keeps trying to go through the "internal" nic card instead of the nic card attached to my broadband modem.. Help....

    You just give IP addresses to the interfaces. It is the default route (gateway) that defines which way the "internet" is. Do not define a gateway in the internal interface's properties.

    When you set up connection sharing, then define the interface with the WAN address as the one you are sharing.
