NT TCP/IP Routing problems with multiple network cards
Posted on 1998-05-22
I have two NT servers ('A' and 'B'), each with 3 network cards. I have configured TCP addresses as below and have RIP installed on both servers, with IP forwarding enabled. The subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0 on all interfaces, including the clients.
My problem is that machines can only see (ping) machines on the same subnet. Trying to ping C1 from C2 or C4 from A doesn't work reporting no route to host.
'A' 192.168.2.x 'B'
192.168.1.x C1 ---------+---------------------------------+--------- C4 192.168.4.x
| 192.168.5.x | 192.168.3.x
Server 'A' has NICs with addresses 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.5.1
Server 'B' has NICs with addresses 192.168.3.1, 192.168.4.1 and 192.168.2.2
The clients are configured with an appropriate address for each subnet.
What should the correct subnet mask and default gateways be for each of the NT server interfaces and the clients? Does the fact that I am using private IP addresses cause problems with the routing?
Thanks for any help,
