If I understand this correctly, if I have 2 different nodes on 2 separate subnets, they can not connect to each other though the router unless you do port forwarding
Why is that.
Given the following
---- Switch ------ Router
Wouldn't the following scenario take place
Node 1 sends to the switch, the switch sends the packet tto the router, the router then knows where the IP of node 2 is from previous routing requests, and directs the packets back to the switch, which sends them to node 2
What am I missing ?
Why would I need port forwarding
