i am designing a Intranet where things are always on the move. this is the setup:
(DMZ, 10.209.0.0/16) -+-+ +-+--(10.201.250.200/8:router2:10.200.250.1/16)+-+(DLink switch)
| 10.209.250.1 | |
(Linux router1) +-+-+-+(10.201.250.201:Cisco switch) (DNS caching server:10.200.1.11/16)
(Cisco router: 1721, to Internet) (PC: 10.103.11.1)
Basically the only queer thing here is that the subnet mask for the internal LAN is set at /8 so that I am able to assign addresses like 10.103.yyy.zzz in the intranet and when i setup departmental router, I will seamlessly migrate. So as I hv show here, ideally the Internal LAN NIC of the Linux router (main) should be connected to other routers only, but as of now, we can expect PC to be directly plugged into the main switch.
My problem is: I am running the 'routed' domain on both the Linux router1 and router2 because I didnt want to manually go and add static routes on every router. However, although the setup initially works and the routes are discovered, after a while I get messages such as:
routed[pid]: deleting route to interface eth2 (timed out)
eth2 is connected to the Internal lan.
I am here to clarify.
Over to you.
