We currently run MS Server 2003 with three client computers. It is set up DHCP with DSL, wired only. Our small office is within a larger building that has a DHCP network with numerous printers. We have permission to access/use the network printers on their network. And, we have CAT5 ports in our office for the building network. Our client computers are not connected to a domain on our MS Server 2003 - they only access Exchange, and our office's printers/shared folders through a bat file. I figured not being a part of a domain would make connecting to the building network's resources (printers) easy.
What is the best way to access resources on the building network? Should I install a second nic on the client computers and plug into the building network? Would bridging these two nics allow this to happen? How would my computer know what nic to use for the different networks' resources?
btw, we run xp media center on the client pcs.
Any help is appreciated!
