Hi All,

I'm trying to network my laptop (Windows XP) to my Windows 2000 Server and use the Windows 2000 server as a proxy for the Internet. :thumbsup:

The Windows 2000 server box has two network cards. The first is connected to the ISP (Blueyonder) and gets DHCP info. The second is connected to the laptop via a minihub and is configured as static IP in the 192.x.x.x range. :flowers:

I installed Jana Server to do the proxy stuff and it worked for a bit but then stopped working. It seemed that all requests for the Internet were rerouted through the LAN card which connects to the Laptop. The only way I could get the Internet connection working again was to disable the local LAN connection which meant that the Laptop could only surf the net for maybe a couple of minutes. :trumpet:

I have tried talking to a few people about this but nobody could offer any help, including the people who wrote Jana Server. :inlove:

If anyone could lend a hand and give me some ideas, that would be much appreciated. :bike:

Many thanks

If you must have the server as the internet gateway you will have to dump the static IP for the laptop and set up the ghastly MS Internet Connection Sharing (now I think about it I don't know if that lets you define proxies?).
Otherwise I'd say put a switch/router between the Server and the Modem and plug your laptop in there. That way you keep your static IP and the server can still act as a proxy.
Just my thoughts.
