This might help, but I'm not totally clear on your routing at the Rio Rancho
Are the current PCs in the Rio Rancho Lib. on the same subnet as the City?
For example, all PCs, both lib and city are 10.10.9.x. Or are they on
separate subnets, like 10.10.9.x and 10.10.7.x?
If they are on separate ones, you can add a batch file to the Windows
Startup in the machines that need access to the server that contains a line
route add 192.168.2.10 10.10.9.1 ( use your own IPs)
Call it addroute.bat or something similar.
In my example, the 192.168.2.10 is the IP of the Millenium server, and the
10.10.9.1 is the ethernet interface on the router on the Rio Rancho Lib. end
of the T-1 to the server.
This way, the PCs stay on the 'City side' and yet, have a route to the
If the router then is set to pass traffic from 10.10.9.0 to the ethernet
only traffic from PCs on 10.10.9.x will get into that router and on to the
server. traffic from the City (10.10.7.x) will be ignored.
Of course, if there are multiple hosts to reach at the Albuquerque PL, then
you will need a separate line in the addroute.bat file to point at each one.
route add 192.168.2.10 10.10.9.1
route add 192.168.2.11 10.10.9.1
route add 192.168.2.12 10.10.9.1
Hope this helps, and feel free to communicate further off-list if you wish.
