1 Computer, 2 Networks, How to view both networks
Posted on 2004-10-06
Ok guys i'm usually good with networking but i have a problem thats stumping me.
At my place of employment we have 1 router setup, it passes through a linux - mandrake box that has a proxy server, 2 nic cards, from there it goes to our other switches etc. the router ip is 192.168.2.1, the linux box switches the ips to 192.168.1.*. The linux box works as a proxy/dhcp server. The linux box supplys no gateway. I plugged directly into the router and I can get internet access via the router however cannot see the network behind the linux box. I tried adding a second ip address of 192.168.1.245 with the correct subnet, however no gateway because the linux dhcp server supplies no gateway. (I also tried with a gateway of 192.168.1.4 (linux box ip) but still had no luck seeing the other network. I have no clue what to do!! I'm trying to avoid 2 nic cards in order to make this work. Does anyone have any suggestions?
