How can I make two different network segment can talk to each other
Posted on 2008-10-07
Here is the laundry list:
- Two server that each one has two NIC.
- Two different network segments: 192.168.1.1 and .2.1
- 5 Linksys SRW2048 switches
- 1 Linksys RV042 router 192.168.2.1)
- 1 Cisco 1841 router (192.168.1.1)
I connected all the SRW2048 through their uplink, implementing LAG and trunk them too.
Because I divided the network in two I can't make a computer from segment .1.1 to access a computer on .2.1 segment.
So I wonder how can I over come this. I have tried the vlan, but I'm not sure that I'm doing the right thing because I either loss connection between the ones in the same segment or nothing happened.
I trunk the ports between the switches.
I selected two computers, one from each network.
I port trunk them.
I set the port to vlan to the right vlan
I can't ping between them so I their I'm doing something wrong or my approach is not quite right
For those that wonder about two segments, well I run out of ip address also I move the iPhone and personal laptop to the DHCP in the .2.1 segment.
