One nic to two nics equals no RWW?

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by chiptransisto, Jun 5, 2005.

  1. I had one nic and decided to add the second nic for best practices. I set it
    up liike smallbizserver.net recommends. At the office everything works fine.
    I have access to files, can get on the internet, etc. The problem is that I
    can't access my client computers using RWW. I can access the server using
    RWW but not the client computers. An additional problem is that I have a
    smartphone that syncs with my exchange. It has been working for months.
    However, when I added the second nic and set up my network, I can no longer
    sync with my smartphone.
    When I went back to the one nic setup, everything works again.
    I have rerun 'connect to the internet' wizard, restarted my computers, etc..
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hi Chiptransisto,

    Thank you for posting in SBS newsgroup.

    Please check the following settings:

    1. Leave the Default Gateway of the internal NIC blank.
    2. Configure both the internal NIC and the external NIC to use the internal
    DNS Service as the DNS Server.
    3. On the DNS Server, create the DNS Forwarder to forward the external DNS
    resolution requests to the ISP's DNS server. See:

    323380 How to configure DNS for Internet access in Windows Server 2003
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=323380

    4. Strictly followed the instructions in the KB article below to run CEICW:

    825763 How to configure Internet access in Windows Small Business Server
    2003
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=825763

    If the problem still exists, please paste the results of ipconfig /all

    In addition, only the client machine has enabled RDP or Terminal service
    can be RDP.

    Regarding the problem of "syncs with my exchange", would you please to help
    me to confirm if you have received any errors? Currently, please refer to
    the following KB article to see if you have encountered the same problem:

    817379 Cannot Access Exchange Server 2003 by Using Outlook Mobile Access
    When
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=817379

    817311 A Blank Page Appears on Outlook Mobile Access Clients When Users Log
    On
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=817311

    Hope the information help and I look forward to your reply. Thanks for
    your time.

  4. Thanks for the help. I'm moving this week but will try to switch back to two
    nics next week and try all of your suggestions. I will keep you posted.
    As far as syncing with my smartphone, as soon as I went back to one nic, it
    started working again. The error message that I received when it was not
    working was that my account did not have permission for remote access. It
    obviously does since I am now syncing with my smartphone.
