By using the following command i was able to enable the routing on windows xp.
Click Start, click run and enter regedit.
Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters, we can find a value called IPEnableRouter. Let's double click it and set the value to 1. We are all set then.
and by following command i was able to make communication between ip range 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
route ADD 220.127.116.11 MASK 255.255.255.0 METRIC 2 IF 1
i was able to ping between the 2 pcs
now my question is can i
1. can i apply restriction on a perticular ip address to not to be accessed by other ip range eg.
