Using the ports on the rear of a Type 5 Modem/Router

I have tried support with no luck, so this is my last chance.

We have a Type 5 modem/router with No-NAT and are happily using one port linked to a server. The NIC in the server is set to the IP address issued by PLUS (one above the router address). A second NIC in the server is for our netowkr and a proxy serves the network.

WHat I want to know is how to connect computers to the other ports. I have tried using an IP address two above the router address with no luck. The notes on ADSL on the Plus side casually mention plugging extra computers into the ports but not what the settings on the NIC would be.

RE: Using the ports on the rear of a Type 5 Modem/Router

I real need more info ie O/S etc this would make a big diffrence. Your server is acting as a router if it has 2 nicks so it has to do the routing. Does the router have an IP? Does it only have one port?
Type 5 routers are new and bt are using a lot of these routers http://www.flowpoint.com/res-sohorouters.html.
How many ip do you have? If you only have one then you are doing PAT(port Address Translation).

What proxy are you using?

Lets assume your nick that plugs into the router is 212.119.131.11 subnet 255.255.255.0 and it works ok.

Your internal network can be set to 10.0.0.1- 10.0.0.55 subnet 255.255.255.0. The second nick in the server is set to 10.0.0.2.

THe best place for the proxy is on the server. There are 2 ways to connect the other pc. 1 is to set there default gateway to 10.0.0.2 which would get them straight out onto the net(assuming the server is routing). 2 set all the other pc to use the proxy 10.0.0.2 which would mean you control them getting porn etc. The server default gateway is set to 212.119.131.11 this is the crucial bit.

If you open a dos prompt on the server and type route print you should see the servers routing table(assumes win2k/nt) you can add routers with this command type route /? for all the commands.

If all else fails email me with all your details jan@janwright.co.uk
