Are you using the new Routing and Remote Access Service Upgrade or the
"offf the shelf" NT? If the latter then you may want to download the
upgrade from Microsoft.

Sorry, have to ask these...

Have you enabled IP Forwarding(Routing) in the TCP/IP settings?
Have you set up a static route between the two ethernet cards or are you
trying to use RIP?

Hope this helps,
