Need router to accept traffic from two sources
Posted on 2004-11-09
I need my 3com router to accept traffic from the following: 1) 192.168.0.xxx addresses and 2) a single address on a 68.255.169.xxx network. But here's the part that's throwing me off, the LAN side of the 3com router is ALREADY on the 192.168.0.xxx and the WAN side is ALREADY on the 68.255.169.xxx network. As it is now, the router is handling traffic from the 192.168.0.xxx network just fine, but it's not allowing through traffic from the 68.255.169.xxx network (obviously, because the LAN side is on a different subnet than the traffic it's trying to allow). I was told that I need to add a static route to allow the 68.255.169.x traffic to access the 192.168.0.xxx LAN side of the router (this router only has a web interface with the following fields: destination network, subnet mask, gateway address, and a drop down with the choices "LAN" or "WAN"). Could someone please tell me what to enter for each field? Also, as plainly as possible, could someone explain what is meant by destination address, gateway address, and "LAN" and "WAN" as it applies here to static routes? Thanks much.
