VPN, IP, and Domain Help Please!


This may be a bit long-winded, please excuse it before hand.

I am running a network with 2 different domains at a public school.  1 Server (Windows 2000 Server) runs our administrative side, and the other server (Win NT 4.0) runs our student side.  Our Win NT 4.0 Server is our DHCP server.  We are also using NAT on our CISCO T1 Router.  I need to be able to assign a static IP (given to me by our local ISP) to both our servers in order for me to connect via VPN from home to either domain.  My problem is, whenever I try to assign a static IP to my servers, the clients loose connection to the servers because they are still on my NAT assigned/DHCP IP range (172.XXX.XXX.XXX).  Is there not a way to assign DUAL IPs for my servers?  How do I go about assigning those static IPs to my servers, yet still use my DHCP/NAT for my workstations?  What type of configuration do you recommend?
Any advice is welcome, and if you need more information, let me know!


RE: VPN, IP, and Domain Help Please!


You should be able to go to the TCP/IP properties of your network card and under IP Address select Advanced.  Then ADD a second IP address (and subnet) to the NIC.  Very easy operation.  A reboot will be needed.

if that doesnt work you can try adding a network card
