I want to use XP as a router to route traffic from network 192.168.0.0 to network 192.168.20.0
I have 3 PCs we will call....SOURCE-PC, ROUTER-PC, DESTINATION-PC.
All PCs are physically wired though the same switch. In other words, physically on same network, but two different subnets running on this wire.
On ROUTER-PC, I have it set as follows...
I have set IPEnableRouter to 1 in the registry and rebooted.
I have two NIC cards on it set static as:
I have set route on this PC with this command:
route add 192.168.20.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.254
SOURCE PC: I have it on the 192.168.0.0 network I have given it a default gateway of 192.168.0.254
TARGET PC. It has an address of 192.168.20.50
From SOURCE-PC, I try to ping 192.168.20.50 It fails, and that is my problem. My XP router is not routing traffic to the 20.0 network even though I have followed all the instructions that everyone says will make it work. I can ping 0.254 and I can ping 20.7, but I cannot ping the DESTINATION-PC. And Yes, all software firewalls are off. Tracert shows the traffic dies at the ROUTER-PC and isn't passed beyond the ROUTER-PC.
Please Help!! I have been trying for weeks to make this work. Thanks in advance.
