Bridging networks with Windows XP. Trouble seeing other network
Posted on 2011-02-22
I am trying to bridge 2 completely different TCP\Ethernet networks using a Windows XP box with 2 network adapaters installed. One network is our VOIP network using the 192.168.0.0 naming convention, the other is our data network at 10.2.0.0 As you may or may not know, Windows XP has a built in feature that allows you to highlight both adapters, right-click, and create a bridge between the two.
We need access to our VOIP network so that users can modify their phone settings via web GUI on our PBX. So I am trying to connect our data network with our voip network using a simple Windows XP bridge. However, I am unable to see the VOIP network and cannot reach the VOIP server.
If this network bridging cannot be accomplished with a Windows XP bridge, are there other...simple...suggestions?
