ROUTE ADD Networking Help
Posted on 2006-10-30
I have a network that lives on 192.168.0.x. Very standard stuff, gateway on .1, etc.
We need to create a VPN to another site (that has an subnet of 192.168.11.x)
We have 'split' our Internet connection. The original router, which will be used for regular Internet usage will stay at 192.168.0.1.
We have put in a new VPN router and that lives on the network 192.168.25.x (with the router itself being .1)
Each have their own external IP connecting to the Internet.
Both routers plug into the 24 port switch of the network.
I need to put in a route statement (all the workstations) so that all traffic destined for the .11.x network goes out the .25.1 gateway.
I am having some trouble, which I think is with the subnet mask (however, I am ready to be corrected).
Should I setup the subnet masks on each workstation to be 255.255.0.0 and then have a
ROUTE ADD statement 192.168.11.0 MASK 255.255.0.0 192.168.25.1
I am getting a variety of errors when I try this.
Also, what should the subnet of the VPN router be set to?
