I have 2 sites that are linked together by fiber on an internal network. they are on 2 different subnets (10.1.1.0/24 and 192.168.1.0/24). I am trying to link them together so they will go over the internal gigabit network, instead of going over the internet connection.
I was hoping to use a Linksys RVS4000 gigabit router I have sitting around here. I was planning on assigning an IP to the WAN and LAN port, one from each subnet, say 192.168.1.2 and 10.1.1.2. I was then going to forward all requests for the other subnet, on the one network, to be forwarded onto the Linksys router(to be done on the gateway). I would then copy this on the other networks gateway.
Then I was going to set up the Linksys to use static routhing to forward the IP range on to the gateway on the respective network. I havent gotten a chance to test it yet, but does this sound like it should work?
The routers on either end should be handing out the IPs for each subnet and the linksys will just be connected to a LAN port on either router.
