Title might be weird but I wanted to include all the factors involved.
I have a windows server 2008 r2 in a virtual network which has 2 networkadapters The settings are the following
Adapter 1 (connected to the internet) IP 192.168.27.40 SubnetMask 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.27.1 DNS 192.168.200.14
Adapter 2 (used for passing dhcp to the clients and connected with Adapter 1 via NAT (RRAS) IP 10.0.0.1 Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: empty DNS: 127.0.0.1
With these settings I was able to connect to the domain called
I had internet at this point. Now the next I did was just shutting down the clients which I just added to the domain network.
I left for that day leaving the server on, and both clients off. I joined today again and I have the server connected with adapter 1 to the internet, and using adapter 2 to spread around DHCP without any problem.
However, I cannot connect to the internet on the clients anymore. When I troubleshoot the issue it tells me:
The remote device or resource won't accept the connection
This cannot be a firewall issue because the firewalls are OFF on both machines.
What can I do now? I'm clueless. If you need more information I'll be glad to add it.
EDIT: The W7 has obtained these details:
IP: 10.0.0.22 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 Default gateway 10.0.0.1 DHCP Server 10.0.0.1 DNS Servers 10.0.0.1
