    Two Network cards in One computer accessing two networks..
    I was wondering if you could help me with a small problem.

    I have one network card (A) accessing the internal network i.e.. Net. Printer, shared folders on other computers, and shared servers.

    Another network card (B) accessing a public network address for VoIP and T1 traffic i.e.. Ports 2427-2500 & 13456 on ip address

    I block all the ports on (B) except the ones I want to access VoIP.
    Yet when I try to use the internet it most often tries to use (B) instead of (A) where it has full access to the internet for browsing.

    Also when the T1 card tries to communicate to the VoIP ports it tries to access it through (A) and doesn't complete because of the VLan.

    The point here is that I am trying to access this computer to grab files from it on our VLan on (A), yet have the VoIP working off the public IP Address. (B)

    Is there a program that can help me with this or a procedure that will work?

    I'm not sure what all your terms mean (VoIP and Vlan?) and I'm not entirley clear about what you are trying to achieve but I do know that when I set up one of my computers with two network cards I had to enable my computer to act as a router and configure static pathways through the PC from one network section to another.

    This was joining two network segements so I'm not sure it would help you in your problem as it would appear that one of your cards is connected to the internet but maybe this may be of some help in pointing you in the right direction.
