Confused! Accessing other networks
Posted on 2003-10-30
I have set-up two floors of a building with two seperate networks.
Here's a rough outline:
Floor 5 - Network: 10.8.15.0/255.255.255.0 - Has a router with default gateway set to 192.168.100.193
Has own router/firewall with IP 10.8.15.1
Floor 2 - Network: 10.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 - Has a router with default gateway set to 192.168.100.193
Has own router/firewall with IP 10.0.0.1
Ground floor comm's room contains the main router and firewall, firewall has the IP 192.168.100.193 and is configured with correct router and ip configuration. Both floors can surf the web ok and recieve e-mails, etc without any problems.
I've set-up a PC in the basement (with IP 192.168.100.1) so that I can administrate the main firewall (192.168.100.193) and routers on the individual floors. I am not physically at this location so I've set-up VPN on the server to remote dial-in which I can do without any problems.
Anyway, getting to the problem I did (on 192.168.100.1) route add 10.8.15.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.100.193 metric 1 but can't seem to ping or access the router/firewalls on the seperate floors, I have no problem accessing the main firewall on 192.168.100.193.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
P.S hopefully this can be done what losing my remote connection as otherwise I'll have to make a trip out of the office!
