Hello, I have a production network and database, and a development network and database, and they have previously been at different locations, but now I have moved everything into one location, and I'm trying to find the best way for them to co-exist and make our development/deployment processes as easy as possible while still maintaining our ability to test in an isolated environment.
Currently, what I have done as a first try at setting it up is simply to setup the developmental firewall, a Netgear FVS338, attached to the main production firewall, another identical Netgear, with NAT.
The production network is 192.168.1.x, and the development network is 192.168.99.x.
I'd like to be able to share files between the two networks, possibly even create a trust relationship between my two domain controllers, but the NAT configuration is definitely preventing that... The Netgears both have a choice of NAT or "Classical Routing", but I can't seem to figure out how to make that do what I want, or at the very least, from what I've read, it seems like I'd have to create a static route for each machine on the network.
Can anybody recommend the correct setup for what we're trying to do? I've got a diagram of how I'm setup now, I'll upload that in a few...
Thanks in advance!
