    How do I connect one machine to two networks

    Hello,

    Here at our school we have a curriculum IP range and an admin IP range. Being the ICT technician my computer frequently needs to connect to both to manage some printers, resources and perform certain tasks.

    Our server has two network cards which are both patched into our network and on the same domain. All the switches are attached (i.e. there is no physically seperate admin / curriculum network).

    My question is- is it possible to operate on both these networks at the same time from one machine? If not- what could I do to make the process easier?

    depends what you mean by operate on both networks. You cant be a member of both domains but trusts can be set up so you can login to either though your pc is based in 1

    have the IP ranges set on the network card

    go to properties of IPv4
    Add an IP range in the boxes
    Click on advanced
    Add another IP range
    Add another gateway
    Add another DNS

    Et voila, IP range to cover both networks

    If you need to add domains, domain trusts should be done.

  4. Thanks to nephilim from:

    Just saw the thanks, your welcome. I have my work laptop set to do this so that I can have DHCP at home, Admin and Curriculum network at work, so I can connect without issue!
