Hi. All the new Control versions are Linux based (hardware, software and virtual).

If you are running an old version in a one internet connection scenario Kerio Control is the default gateway, so the local Nic (say 192.168.1.254) in the contol box should be the default gateway for all the computers in the Lan.
Please take note that on the Lan nic of the control box , the default gateway should be left blank.

The other nic should ve connected to the Adsl modem or whatever the isp provides.


The manuals are very clear.

Best regards

Thank you, I will be running a Kerio Control 6 on Windows XP. But currently my ADSL Modem/Router acts as the Default Gateway but i dont want that to be the case for all clients. I need them to use Kerio Control as the default gateway. Sorry, if i sound to stupid; how should i configure the other NIC that will be going to the switch? I know the one from the ADSL Modem will be 192.168.1.253 and the Mask of 255.255.255.0 and leave the default gateway black.

If your modem/router is behind Kerio control , the computers on the network will not find it unless the Control is the default gateway for all of them. I donĀ“t know why you want different gateways. The only thing I can imagine IF you want the router as a gateway is setting the Control as a Proxy Server. In this scenario , you should not connect the router to the control box.

Watch your network addressing. You are showing the 192.168.1.0 network on both sides of Control. This can cause routing issues.

Consider using another 192 based network internally (192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0) or changing to the 10.x.x.x networks. My preference is to use the 10.x.x.x networks internally. There is more flexibility in addressing.
