Transfering files from one blacknet to another

Howdy.

I have the following setup:

  X -- a -- Y -- b -- Z

X, Y and Z are computers and a and b are switches.

X has ip address 192.168.1.1

Y has ip address 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.0.2

Z has ip address 192.168.0.1

I need to transfer files from Z to X. I have thought about building some form of portforwarding and run an ftp server on X but I find it kind of clumsy. Is there a simpler way?

All 3 machines run windows 2003 standard server edition.

Thanks for your help.

What operating system is Y?  what is the subnet mask? ( I assume 255.255.255.0 ), what are the gateways?  is there intenet involved?  is there any routers or VLANs or any other devices on the network that you haven't mentioned?

If Y is a windows computer, you can try turning this registry key on:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\IPEnableRouter

you will need to add this route on the X box
route 192.168.0.1 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.2

and this route on the Z box
route 192.168.1.1 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.2


But you should really take into account the topology and routing information for the whole network before you start redefining static routes.

Hehe.

All 3 machines run windows 2003 standard server edition and all subnet masks are 255.255.255.0.

X has a second network card with a public ip address to allow ppl to access that machine from the net.
On switch b there is a few more internal machines that work with machine Z.

That's about it. :)
