Bridging issues when router is used TCP IP setting of 2 NIC

Started by Jim

i have a dsl connection, a router etc.

i have configured your soft on a server with 2 nic.

i have activated bridging

on my LAN side, what is the gateway the users need to configure to they get filtered knowing the 2 NIC are connected to the router ?

IE

do i need to have both nic cards on the server make reference to the router gateway IP and then configure the lan users with a gateway = to the IP of 1 of the nic cards on the server. if yes, how to i define which card is lan side and wich card goes to the router ?

i have sent my network diagram by email.

thanks

No, give these two server NICs with any IP address from the
192.168.1.x network, then configure LAN users to use the router as gateway. The bridge is transparent for LAN users as they should go through it.
Dear Andrew,

One very Important question,

Can we filter or limit trafic when we use bridging. if no then what is the benifit of using bridging. y do not connect all clint directly to router.

Plz.. clear my this confussion.
Thanks.

Sure, you can. This feature (briging) is made exactly for that, to be placed between a router and rest of the network to control internet bandwidth.
dear Andrew,
My router ip is 192.168.1.1
Server Computer Outer Ip is 192.168.1.2
Server Computer Inner Ip is Outer Ip is 192.168.1.3

after bridging What should be the gateway of my clients.

Send me a sample rule for caping a client pc at the speed of 100 kbps.

The gateway IP should be 192.168.1.1 (your router IP). A rule example:

Rule #1: Client
Protocol: TCP/UDP
Direction: Both
Rate: 100 Kbps
Source: 192.168.0.1.100 (a client)
Destination: Any IP address
Interface: LAN (points to the local network)

Please note that the rule must use the interface connected to the network, not to the router.
