Smoothwall Network Routing
Posted on 2011-03-13
Hi, I'm joining 2 networks together using Smoothwall (Linux PC based routers). How do i link up the network cards and set the routing? Our network is as follows:
Smoothwall 1 Smoothwall 2
10.10.10.1 ---------- Fibre ----------10.10.10.200
10.10.10.99 Servers/Clients on
I can zone bridge the 2 interfaces on Smoothwall 2 so 10.10.11.x clients can talk to the 10.10.10.x network. My question is the other way around. My PC (10.10.10.99) on Smoothwall 1 needs access to the 10.10.11.x network. How would i setup the routing here? Would i physically connect the switch on the 10.10.10.0 side to the 10.10.10.200 network card on Smoothwall 2 and setup a route from 10.10.10.0/24 pointing to 10.10.11.0 using the gateway 10.10.10.200?
or, would i connect the switch on the 10.10.10.0 side to the 10.10.11.x switch and setup a route from 10.10.10.0/24 pointing to 10.10.11.0 using the gateway 10.10.11.0? Basically, which inteface do i connect to? All help appreciated.
