JSI Tip 7230. How do I configure Windows Server 2003 to function as a router for my LAN?

To configure Windows Server 2003 to act as a router for your LAN:

1. Open the Routing and Remote Access snap-in from the Administrative Tools folder of your Start menu.

2. Right-click the server in the left-hand pane and press Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access.

3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

NOTE: See Configure the Corporate Network which I extracted from Help and Support.

4. Right-click the server and press Properties.

5. Select the General tab and verify that the Router check box and option are set and correct.
