Hi, im trying to setup an unconventional network. It needs to have 3 subnets, we have limited network hardware available and need to co-host the network in 2 seperate rooms (One quiet room for client machines, one noisy server room)
I've included a drawing which should help explain the situation.
In the client room i have multiple client machines on different subnets all patched into the same switch, this switch is connected to an identical switch in the Server Room and again all the servers are connected to the switch.
We also have two laptops connected to the switch in the Server Room.
Both laptops have 2 NICs and are running Shunra Cloud software to allow us to test with reduced bandwidth (Shunra is currently turned off on both laptops)
In the past we have used these laptops as routers and ideally that is what im trying to do again.
At the moment i have been doing my Testing in the Server Lab. Im sat on 192.168.2.10 and i can ping Laptop 2 (192.168.2.251) but i cant ping Laptop 1 (192.168.2.250) has anyone got any idea why i can't? Laptop 2 can ping Laptop 1 without issue?
Thank you for your help
