Network - Redhat Linux

I have two network

10.10.10.0/24 and 10.10.20.0/24

10.10.10.0 - two systems
10.10.10.33
10.10.10.37

10.10.20.0 - two system
10.10.20.2
10.10.20.3

I have another system which is connected 10.10.10.0/24 and 10.10.20.0/24 network


I want to be able to ping 10.10.20.2 maching from 10.10.10.0/24 network.

How do i setup static route. Please provide me the steps.

Hi,

First of all your machine with 2 interfaces should must be enabled for routing. (it is off by default). To enable routing use this procedure:

edit your /etc/sysctl.conf file to include 
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

Open in new window


Then all your systems at both sides should use your router (RedHat with 2 interfaces) either as default gateway so the traffic for the other network should go to your router or you need to create static route setting on each system to point to the router (at both interfaces)

Cheers,
K.

Hello,

Simpliest (but not dirty) way for your problem - set netmask to /16 255.255.0.0 and all systems can be in one subnet.

I have many devices manually configured which i don't want to change. Is there any other better way. Why static route won' t work?

Network one - 10.10.10.0/24
Network two - 10.10.20.0/24

U can show this command output from both devices?

I want able to ping from 10.10.10.37 to 10.10.20.2 AND
from 10.20.10.2 to 10.10.10.37 vice versa.


I am using  ns system as router which have access to both network.

All routing configuration fine (mail:  10.10.10.0/24 via 10.10.20.4   smtp:  10.10.20.0/24 via 10.10.10.6).

May u need enable forwarding on ns node:
echo "net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
sysctl -p

Can u see forwarded packet in iptables (iptables -nvL FORWARD)?

Hello,

U need create files: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0 on both servers with following contents:
10.10.20.0/24 via 10.10.10.6 dev eth0
and
10.10.10.0/24 via 10.10.20.4 dev eth0
