I setup a 2003 server and have a workstation right beside it. Web server and workstation both on 192.168.2.0 network that's connected to a router and then to internet. The server is only letting through port 80. For security reasons. I don't wanna access it from my workstation through this IP. Therefore I setup a separate NIC in each computer, hooked them up with a cross-over cable and gave them IPs 10.10.10.1 and 10.10.10.2 mask 255.255.255.0 The problem is that when I try to access both computers back and forth they ping each other but not all the time most of the packets are dropped and not getting to each other. I tried static routes in both machines and that doesn't seem to help either. It looks like it's confused and not going to the right interface and then the right network. I am confused myself as well now Please help me out. Thanks.
