two networks to talk to each other

network 202.123.123.123 with subnet 192.168.1.x   to talk to network 202.122.122.122. with subnet 192.168.2.x

routers are asa5506 & sonicwall

i want to make sure devices in 192.168.1.x  can access devices on 192.168.2.x   viseversa.

please advise the simplest way...

thank you,

mwauki

thanks all for your help!  

the method that works for me is:  using a straight thru cable plugged into each router's switch ports and configuring one router as static and the other as dynamic and using the a an ip from the static router as a gateway on any workstations under the dynamic router... now am able to talk to each workstations on both networks.

what ive done so far is:  between the two routers, i have a pnp network switch and on each pc or pc that needs to go accross i've done a persistent route where:
on 192.168.1.x
Network Address          Netmask  Gateway Address  Metric
        0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0   192.168.200.79  Default
        0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      192.168.1.1  Default
    192.168.1.1  255.255.255.255      192.168.2.1       1
    192.168.2.1  255.255.255.255      192.168.1.1       1
--------------
192.168.2.x

192.168.2.1  255.255.255.255  192.168.1.1      1
0.0.0.0   0.0.0.0                             192.168.2.1   default
192.168.1.1   255.255.255.255    192.168.2.1 1
192.168.2.1   255.255.255.255   192.168.2.1 1

Your routes need to be configured on the firewalls
You didn't specify the subnet mask for each but I'll assume they're both /24
I'll assume the ASA is 202.123.123.123 wile the Sonicwall is202.123.123.122
I'll assume also that the asa and sonicwall can ping each other

On the asa
ip route 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0 202.122.122.122

On sonicwall (not sure the exact command for sonicwalls but the concept is the same)
ip route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 202.122.122.123

Hi there,

Is the communication happening over the internet?

Static routes along with site to site VPN configuration would be the best recommended way to securely communicate from one site to another.

The below link will guide you through the procedure of setting this UP:
