inhouse testing - computer acting as router
Posted on 2004-09-09
I am wanting to test our server setup inhouse before colocation deployment.
This is the configuration:
Cisco CSS 11150 (WebNS 6.1) (IP: 220.127.116.11 Subnet: 255.255.255.252) connects to two servers (IPs: 18.104.22.168 & 22.214.171.124 Subnet: 255.255.255.240) and two DNS servers (IPs: 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52 Subnet: 255.255.255.240).
When deployed the Cisco CSS will connect to the ISPs router on the same subnet ie. Router IP: 184.108.40.206 Subnet: 255.255.255.252.
Before deployment, I would like to test this configuration and the Cisco CSS functionality. I have connected a spare computer directly to the CSS (in the place of the router) and put in the same network settings as the router (ie. Router IP: 220.127.116.11 Subnet: 255.255.255.252.)
Currently the configuration does not work ie. from the spare computer that is acting as the ISPs router I can not ping any other the servers or the DNS machines.
Am I missing something? Is this possible?
Thanks in advance.
