Should I use a static route to reach an external ip on a private network?
Posted on 2008-10-09
I am trying to connect an MQ box that is multi homed to a private network that is connected to a 3rd party vendor.
Server setup 10.x.x.x with a gateway at 10.x.x.250 on the LAN interface and 192.168.2.10 on the private with no gateway on the Private interface. I am trying to get to a 172.19.1. X server on the private network.
Private network is cisco 1800 series router on 192.168.2.1.
It has a static route 172.19.1.X (server ip) 255.255.255.255. 172.18.254.X (external router ip)
I can not ping the 172.19.1.x machine from the server. Do i need a static route on the server? and if so what route?
