We've recently acquired a Dell PowerEdge r420 server (2 NICs). After installing the OS (Windows Server 2008 R2), we've installed SQL Server 2008 and IIS. Now we have a public IP given to us by the ISP. The aim is to make this a public facing server.
I'd like to know how to assign the public IP to this server. One NIC has been given a private IP for internal access.
On a separate note: ping was disabled by deafult which I enabled using "netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8". Now I can ping the server internally. But while assigning the public IP to the second NIC, it can't be pinged from outside. Is there some other service which needs to be enabled?
