Uh, in a word, yes. Problem. Your servers and workstations are completely exposed. -----Original Message----- From: Farrugia, Paul [mailto:pfarrugia@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, October 29, 2003 11:15 AM To: windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [windows2000] IP Addresses Hi, Sorry if this is a little confusing, this is the first time I am dealing with something like this and I am trying to word this as best I as I can... All of the computers (workstations and servers) on my network are on a public ip address range. They are currently using the scope of 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52. It has been like this since before I was here. Does anyone see a problem with this??? From various threads I have read I see that most networks are configured on a private ip range ...192.168.1. xxx...anyway...I wanted to know if this something that I should be looking to change? Is this just common practice or is there a reason for it? I know that changing the ip's on my servers will be more a pain then I need right now but as far as the workstations go..would I just have to create a new scope and have the DHCP server give out those addresses? Thanks in advance for any help Paul.
