smc 4abr
robert03 Sep-09-01 00:44 AM
old network:
w2k server connected to the cable modem (external nic)
(internal nic)connected to lan, client machine ME.
sharing with RRAS and NAT, DNS forwarding to net.
installed the router removed the external nic, removed NAt & DHCP still have DNS on server.
everything works ok.
only problem is tha twhen i enable DHCP on the me machine, i get an ip 192.168.2.37 where as my scope is 192..168.2.1 to 10.
if i make the server dhcp client it get 192.168.2.10 no problems there.
if i use static ip on the ME it cant browse with the router DNS ip, but if i enter the ip of the server with DNS forwarding to the routers ip it works ok.
tried everything,
just point me to a link on configuring this router, coz the manual doesnt provide much info.%

I have an NT server, one Win 2K Pro, one Win 98, and 2 Win Me computers all connected to an SMC Barricade router and a DLink switch plugged into the router. I use the routerís DHCP as is and everything on the router is set to original defaults. DHCP server, DNS, and WINS on the server are disabled. Works great. The router takes care of DNS forwarding/proxy. DNS is disabled on the Win 9X/Me computers. You shouldnít need static IPs. Do you have a gateway set on the Me computer from the old software configuration? I would see if the Win Me computer works OK without the Server connected. Uninstall and reinstall everything network on the Me computer. http://www.smc.com/smc/common/barricade_faq.cfm.

I would upgrade, but I do not think it will solve the basic problems you are having. If you are trying to put a web server behind the router, and it the router works like mine, use a static IP for the web server that does not fall within routerís DHCP server scope (or change the scope) and setup a virtual server on the router with the IP and port 80. I use all dynamic IPs on my network and the router DHCP works fine. If I were to setup a web server using IIS, I would, of course, assign a static IP to that server. Larry

man this is driving me mad, ok first of all the smc router doesnt forawrd to my server.
now im having another problem, how do i setup VPN on the network, ther eis no option in the router setup to setup VPN or setup the router to accept VPN connections, then when i try to setup RRAS and VPN on the w2k server behind the router, it asks for the interface connected to the net, but i only have one interface on the serer connectd to the lan, and connected to the net with that.
so i have to install another nic, or can i setup something for VPN on the router.
please help me

did what was mentioned in the FAQ, but still nothing.
setup my webserver behind the router, on a local ip, checked everything works fine when i enter the local ip in the browser.
setup virtual server and opened port 80 to this ip, but cant connect to the server using the public ip.
also when i check the discard ping from WAN, nothing happend i can still ping the WAN ip.
any other ideas please....

Suggest working one problem at a time. I would try the public IP from a PC that is not behind the router. I would set-up a web server to see what is going on, but my service provider forbids it. I would suggest a phone call to SMC. Larry

just one more question. u said u have VPN or some application ports setup on your router.
my question is that i read that ipsec and l2tp cannot pass through NAT, wanted to know if smc allows this, just let me know if u were able to do it.
thanx

I am able to access http://24.100.17.94 (the VegasDomain) with IE 6.0 from a client behind an SMC Barricade SMC7004BR 4-port 10/100 Mbps Broadband Router running version R.193e of the firmware. Larry

In response to your last post, I have setup some ports, etc. to troubleshoot problems with applications; e.g., mIRC. I have not setup VPN at any time and have setup web servers on Windows NT and 9x, but not behind a Barricade router. If I decide to, I donít think it would be as difficult as actually setting-up the servers. As stated at http://www.smc.com/smc/common/barricade_faq6.cfm, SMC says the router will work, with some restrictions, with VPN connections and IPsec. I have had no problems with secure connections in the one-year plus I have been using the Barricade. That is all I know about it. Larry

thanx a lot buddy.
i think i read somewhere that the smc 4abr support l2tp, ipsec and pptp pass through.
will experiment with this and let u know how it turns out in case anyone else has problems.
thanx again,
