Getting 2 separate networks to talk to one another

I have a real network and a test network. I would like to get both talking to one another either by allowing traffic thru a firewall for access to shares or getting the 2 exchange servers talking to one another. What would be the fastest way to do this?


Also the 2 networks have the same ip range of 10.0.1.0/24......

You need to get a router to route the traffice between the two networks

Oh, scrap that.  They both have the same IP range?  with two DHCP servers?  I'm not sure that'll work.  Do you have two separate domains?

Yes 2 separate domains. There is a router on the main network, the test network there is not.

Well can I just have a pc with 2 nics connected to the differetn networks?/????

I would rather have the 2 domains talking to one another and exchanging emails.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

It would be easier if the subnets were different.

maybe this will help..
try subnetting your network.

10.0.1.0/24 - first network
- ranges: 10.0.1.0/24 - 10.0.1.255/24


10.0.2.0/24 - second network
- ranges: 10.0.2.0/24 - 10.0.2.255/24

once you have assigned two different IP Subnets to your two networks, configure the router as gateway and have routes defined for traffic forwarding.

Production Network

IP Range: 10.0.1.0/24
Gw: 10.0.1.254 - Defined on the router interface 1

Test Network

IP Range: 10.0.2.0/24
Gw: 10.0.2.254 - Defined on the router interface 2

Router should be configured to allow traffic forwarding.

If you want to keep them using the same same IP network, then your need the router/firewall that sits between them to do NAT.

Another option, if you use the same IP Range on both networks - but there are no 'duplicate ip addresses' - is to just switch between the networks.

A third option - again assume there are no duplicate IP addresses - and you only have a router, is to use "proxy arp" on the router interfaces (without NAT).

Added a vlan with the additional network.
