Do you really want these boxes to have ~.1.2 as their gateway? This, after
all, if I have read your earlier diagram right, is the outgoing interface of
the Samba PDC. I think you mean ~.1.1, your outgoing router.

Yes, the two subnets are supposed to have to go through the server box to get to the Internet, rather than having their own direct route.
