routing between different subnets/interfaces
Posted on 1999-12-22
What can I do to solve my routing problem stated below? I don't care whether I have to configure the linux or the NT, so long as it works!
I have an NT 4.0 server using ethernet (10.2.0.7, gateway 10.2.0.1, mask 255.255.0.0) and token ring (10.1.0.50, no gateway, mask 255.255.0.0) with RIP service installed and active.
I have an Open Linux 2.3 2.2.10 box using eth0 (206.xxx.xxx.xxx, gateway 206.xxx.xxx.1)which is the 'public' side connected to ISP; eth1 (10.2.0.1, no gateway, mask 255.255.0.0) with masquerading installed.
All ethernet stations (10.2.x.x) can utilize the internet as expected and work perfectly; this includes the NT server itself.
All token ring stations (10.1.x.x) can ping ANY other ip on the ethernet side EXCEPT the linux (10.2.0.1); and so I believe that is why they CANNOT utilize the internet. The linux box cannot see any token ring stations.
I have tried adding another default route on the linux pointing to 10.2.0.7 (NT) and that lets ALL stations ping ALL OTHER stations; great except it shuts down access to the internet!
I have tried adding a token ring card to the linux, but as soon as it comes online, it shuts down our WAN router! Let me know if more info is needed
I hopefully gave this enough of a chunk of points for your trouble :)
