DSL and Token Ring
BBATES May-10-01 03:19 PM
I have a client/server token ring network with a NT4 server. There is a Cisco router connected to the network with a T1 to the WAN. Rather than add DSL to the router, can I add a second network card to the NT server and let the server route traffic to the internet? What I am concerned with is the fact that the DSL modem would require a ethernet network card and my network is token ring. I know the server can act as a router, but can it act as a bridge???

I have not played with token ring in years. See http://www.microsoft.com/technet/inside/4-5-99.asp?a=printable Larry

Here are a few possible ideas for you maybe one will work. I think if you give the other machines, the NT servers address as the GATEWAY it might work. If not may try and make that the internet computer and share the connection with the use of a proxy (such as analogX's proxy).
That's the best I can think of for now, post back and let us know if it works.

Good Luck
