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.

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.

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?

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. :)
