How do we enable LAN routing on a Win2003 platform using two LAN cards?

Actually Microsoft has done a considerable job at providing some great background, HOWTO, and documentation for setting up routing inside of Windows 2003.

First the server should have the two interfaces configured and routing should be enabled. RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Server) is installed by default, so you just need to enable it. Once that is done, you may then set up which routes you want each interface to take. You want to determine if you are going to want to use static routes or a routing protocol. I typically use a static route inside of these boxes due to the fact that it is a very small environment and static routes are easier to maintain and configure. Depending on the requirements of the environment, set up the appropriate routes by following instructions provided by Microsoft.
