Routing to remote office
Posted on 2008-10-31
HI everyone i have a routing related question. One of my clients has a weird setup between two of their offices and i need to properly route traffic between them.
They have one main office with a direct connection to the internet (gateway 192.168.3.11)
They have a satellite office in the same city for which they had the ISP setup a site to site link to the main office. The office is on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet and the ISP's router is 192.168.1.81. The connection goes directly to the main office (no internet access) where it terminates in a router on 192.168.3.3.
They have a Cisco 1841 router (192.168.3.2) in the main office that routes traffic for main office computers/servers to either the internet or the satellite office
Originally this was setup as not one their users in the remote office needed internet access, however that need has now changed and they need to get users internet access in the satellite office. They do not want to get the ISP involved as they will be moving both offices to a bigger building in the next 8 months and don't want to extend the contract.
Now i'm thinking this can be accomplished by setting up a router in the satellite office with a routing table that looks like this:
0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 gateway 192.168.3.2
192.168.3.0/255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.81
I tried setting it up with a test router but i'm not able to get out to the internet what am i missing? is this the right way to go about it?
