This may be a really stupid question, but I'm a "newbie" and if you don't ask, you never get an answer!
I've been using Internet Connection Sharing on W2K and XP for donkey's years and always taken it for granted that the ICS box has to have an IP Address of 192.168.0.1 and all workstations must have addresses in the 192.168.0.x range.
I don't want to have my workstations on a 192.168.0.x range, I want to have them on the same address range as my ADSL Router which is 192.168.2.1. Ideally I would like all my workstations on 192.168.2.10 to 192.168.2.199 and my servers / printers etc on 192.168.2.200 - 254
Can this be done? Can I leave my ADSL Router on 192.168.2.1, and let the ADSL Router's DHCP give me a (permanent) address of say 192.168.2.3 to my Public NIC and then can I give a static IP address of say 192.168.250 to the second Private NIC and let my DHCP Server hand out addresses in the range 192.168.2.10 to 192.168.2.199?
If this is possible, can someone point me to a URL or give me some clues as to how to do it. I also need to be able to forward ports to a different server for FTP and another for iPrint etc.
