Setting up bridge on Windows 2000 workstation with 2 NICs 25 February 2006, 07:18
When I change the Default Gateway on an another machine to point to 192.168.1.210 I cannot access the Internet. I can ping 192.168.1.210. Can you help?

give complete network diagram with ips.
i think ur network will be like it.
Router --> Windows 2000 Workstation--> client
if yes. then i can give u a sample.
Router(192.168.1.1) --> (192.168.1.2)Windows 2000 Workstation(192.168.1.210)--> client
now give any ip in the same range to client & 192.168.1.1 as a gateway. if u will use bridging.then ur server will remain invisible but u can filter & control traffic.

I am asking because there are specific sutations. Let me explain. When your network layout is like this
<Uplink/Router [A.A.A.A]> - <[B.B.B.B] Windows with Bandwidth Manager [C.C.C.C]> - <Switch> - <Client computers [D.D.D.D, E.E.E.E, etc]>
where A.A.A.A to E.E.E.E are IP addresses. The most imporant thing here is what is used a gateway on the client computers. If the clients' gateway was C.C.C.C this means that the Windows station routes traffic to the uplink and there is NO need to bridge the interfaces. However, if previously your clients had A.A.A.A as their gateway and you have just placed the Windows station between the uplink and clients, another scheme apply.
Please tell what is your situation and I'll be able to advise you further.

The BM computer does not have routing turned on, and ICS is not enabled. ICS cannot be used, I have a DHCP server on the network. The BM documentation is very limited, I am assuming the bridging took care of this.
<router[192.168.1.212]> - <[192.168.1.211] Win2k with BM [192.168.1.210]> - <Switch> - <Client Computers [192.168.1.2-100]>
In this case the default gateway on the clients must be 192.168.1.212. Interfaces 192.168.1.211 and 192.168.1.210 must be bridged by the bandwidth manager.
