Hullo,

I have a server that has (2) NIC cards attached to two seperate networks.

1 NIC
192.168.0.X
255.255.255.0
192.168.0.1

2nd NIC
192.165.0.X
255.255.255.0
192.165.0.50

I need to have traffic come in on the 1st NIC and be routed to another workstation on the 2nd NIC's subnet. Is this possible?

Tanks....

Are both NIC's on private networks? If so, you need to have 192.168.x.x on BOTH NIC's, and change the 3rd octet - 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x would be your different subnets.

As gurutech mentioned, 192.165.x.x is not a "official" private subnet, and you should change it if you can. However, that's really not important to answer your question.

Are you trying to?:
A) Allow ANY host on the 168 subnet to contact ANY host on the 165 subnet?
B) Allow one or more SPECIFIC hosts on the 168 subnet to contact ANY host on the 165 subnet?
C) Forward ALL traffic from ALL hosts on the 168 subnet to the 165 subnet?
D) Some other scenario that I haven't mentioned (please explain...).

Yes,
A scenario is that a Host(s) on the 168 network will need to be allowed all TCP/UDP traffic to a couple of Host(s) in the 165 network. I believe you (A) scenario would be fine. But this would be ONE way only on the initial connection. 168 to 165.
Port Forwarding would not allow some applications to work. FYI.

Thanks Winterfrost for the input.

I just broke down and setup a Logmein free network for remote access from my office so that I can route traffic between the networks when I need to....

Thanks...
