Server People...

Ok, so i've built my server out of an old PC i had layin' around. and i got to thinking, cause a few things aren't working like i think they should... Do I need some kind of special nic card for a server? maybe one with two ports? I dont know, i'm kinda thinking, my cable modem should go directly into the server,(like if it was the only computer i had) and then out of the server into my router... I dont know, i may this all kinds of messed up. I dont know how it should physically be. Any help is much appreciated, i'm trying to learn this the best i can.

thanks.

It depends on what you are doing with the server. What are the main uses of it? Is it going to have firewall software on it to protect the computer and the network?

What kind of router are you using?

I think you should have the server behind your router. It always better to have it behind a hardware firewall.

Right now, my connection goes from the cable modem, to the router, out of the router into the server, my other computers are wireless.

I'm using the server just to learn 2003, i'd like to set it up as a terminal server or a small webserver though. I really dont have any end goals, just trying to learn it.

The way you have it setup is fine then. The only thing you need to do is setup your router to forward, and to open ports.

If you have a Linksys router WRT54G, LMK and I can send you a Firmware for it that has many options you can setup. Its almost like working with and more advanced Cisco router.
