Routing to the internet...
Sounds easy - it SHOULD be easy, but I'm probably trying to make it harder than it is - bear with me!
We have a largish network, 4 servers etc etc all running CC3.
We're looking to move onwards and I'm in the process of setting up the first physical server with 2008 R2 (after a successful virtual test period).
However, the installation of some of the gubbins (namely SCCM) requires an internet connection to download a chunk of stuff. So, we need it to connect to our gateway but NOT the rest of the network (don't need DHCP/DNS taking anything over!)
Obvious solution: vlan. Out the window, the switches don't support it.
Short of finding a house nearby we can borrow internet from (yes, it's an actual possible solution thanks to closeby staff members!) is there some blatantly obvious solution I'm missing? My networking skills are clearly lacking currently :(
As a blind example: (IP addresses are not real)
Normal CC3 network running on IP addresses 192.168.5.11 - 192.168.8.250
Gateway (router) sitting on 192.168.5.1. Can't touch this - it's LEA/EMBC controlled.
Have a separate NIC in the new test server specifically for the internet. I've tried the obvious like setting an IP out of the subnet but with the above gateway address, no dice.
I'm sure there's a simple solution other than home-internet burgalry and buying new switches but I think my brain has been succesfully frazzled by SCCM :D
