Dear Fahad,
 
First off, make sure that you’re using the correct routing configuration, either “Routing and Remote Access” or “ISA Server” on both the DSL router and the server. Also make sure that the DSL router recognizes the client’s LAN. Here is an example that shows how to configure a network, its IP, etc. It might seem difficult so make sure you follow the steps carefully.
 
1. On the DSL router: IP address: 203.188.251.78, Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.48,
 
2. On the server running Windows 2003: DSL Network Adapter IP Address: 203.188.251.178, Gateway: 203.188.251.78, LAN Adapter IP Address: 192.168.1.2, Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.48, The default gateway of the DSL Network Adapter serves as an access point to the IP address of the DSL router.
 
3. On the client workstation: LAN Adapter IP Address: 192.168.1.10, Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.48, Gateway: 203.188.188.178. On all the client workstations, set the default gateway to the IP address assigned to the LAN adapter on the server running Windows 2003.
 
If the DSL router is configured as a DND server, you will have to set the IP address on it.
 
Hope this helps. Please let me know how it goes.
 
Regards,
 
Bappy.

Well correct routing configuration is like, if you are using a DSL router, you won’t have to use a PPPoE
 
(Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) driver on any of the computers,
 
Whether it be a client workstation or the server itself.

If you experiencing connectivity issues on clients, check the routing table on the DSL router. You can access most devices but using an HTTP Web page. If the router in not present, you have to add a static route to the client's network. How you will do it:

  • Active Routes
  • Network _destination: 203.188.251.78
  • Netmask: 255.255.255.48
  • Gateway:203.188.251.78
  • Interface: 203.188.251.78
  • Matrix:1

Do it as mentioned above. Your problem will be solved. Cheers.

Hi Fahad,

It's little bit completed to configure IP for Windows server 2003. I've some useful Hints for you. Have a look on it.

Hints

1, Make sure that you are using the latest firmware updates for your DSL router.

2. Most DSL devices have to be restarted after you make a configuration change. After restart the device, the switching table is rebuilt if the router has a built-in switch technology.

3. Review the documentation of your DSL router.

4. A router and firewall must be able to pass TCP port 1723 (point-to- point tunneling protocol [PPTP] and Generating Rout Encapsulation (GRE) Protocol 47 for PPTP traffic to connect correctly. You have to ensure Routing and Remote Access server, otherwise you cannot connect to the server from the Internet.

Hope these hints will be effective for you.

Regards,

Sumya
