I've been reading here about sharing files and such across subnets but need help troubleshooting and advice to get mine working. I'm running XP on all machines. I have a Buffalo router as gateway and a Vyatta router behind it that adds another subnet:
Internet --> Buffalo/Gateway (192.168.11.99) --> 192.168.11.1 / Vyatta router / 192.168.13.1 --> Clients in 192.168.13.0/24 network
Here's my routing table on the Vyatta:
Routes: 4/4, Paths: 4/4
0.0.0.0/0 [static(1)] > to 192.168.11.99 via eth0
127.0.0.0/8 [connected(0)] > to 127.0.0.1 via lo
192.168.11.0/24 [connected(0)] > to 192.168.11.1 via eth0
192.168.13.0/24 [connected(0)] > to 192.168.13.1 via eth1
From behind the Vyatta, clients can access the internet fine and DNS works. Clients here (.13) can ping clients in the .11 subnet but can NOT ping by name; only by IP address. The Buffalo router has DHCP enabled (on .11.99) and the Vyatta has DHCP enabled (on .13.1).
Is there a way to allow Windows file sharing over my subnets? How? Currently I'm not in a domain environment--do I need to have a WINS "server" in each subnet to allow clients to see each other in My Network Places? How can I get internal name resolution to work? Thanks!
