routing via HP Procurve 2650
Posted on 2007-11-30
I have a decent size network with 600+ hosts on five subnets, not my design. The fifth subnet is the remnants of an old IP structure with is IPÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™d with public addresses. What I need to accomplish is intranet routing between the four private subnets and the remaining public subnet. I have any one or a combination of a HP Procurve 5308xl with two open ports, a full Procurve 2650 that has been sitting on a shelf unused, or an old Cisco 2600 with a single Ethernet port.
I have searched and searched, and have attempted just about every configuration posted on the net, multi-netting with secondary IPs, with both the 2600 and 2650. Putting all of the IPs in a single VLAN, or several VLANS, with static routes and without static routes.
The routing between the four 10.x subnets is never an issue, it is the 199.176 public addresses (which include my Internet connection) that I can never seem to get to route. When we started our IP change over I built a Linux router with an old computer and several nics. This was supposed to be temporary, that was nearly six months ago, thus what I am asking is this, what is the most effective way using the equipment that I have to setup a ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚ÂœtemporaryÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â route through and around my network.
Thanks in advance
