My house now has two internet connections.
I've been trying to set it up so that there are
two isolated networks each with their own
internet connection, but so the halves can talk
via my server.
My server has two NICs, each configured to
the subnet of each network. Each network has
a router/modem (connects to the internet),
which is set as the default gateway of hosts
on each side of the server by DHCP. The aim
is to have the router/modems route traffic
destined for the other networks via the server. I
tried to set up static routes, but they have only
For instance, the router at 192.168.1.1 has a
static route for 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0, and
directs this to 192.168.1.2, the IP of the
server's appropriate NIC. I am then able to ping
192.168.2.2, the server's other NIC which is
connected to the other network. However I
cannot ping any hosts on the other network,
which is my problem.
The server is running windows server 2003,
and has RRaS installed. I simply went "enable
RRaS" and ticked the LAN routing box. I'm not
sure if it requires further configuration or not.
The server can access everything just fine.
If anyone can help me, please help! :D
By the way, the motivation for the splitting of
the network was because it is a requirement
that hosts automatically configure themselves
with DHCP and use the appropriate internet
gateway depending on where they are
