Summary: I need to setup a single PC with two NICs - to access a service on LAN 2
NIC 1 - Data network, web access. Range: 192.168.1.x Sub: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.1.1
NIC 2 - No Web access Range: 192.168.1.x Sub: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.1.1
What im trying to do:
I need the primary NIC to run as is, with all traffic running through it for LAN and WAN. NIC2 is purely used to telnet into 192.168.1.2 for a data stream.
Problems and question:
- Cannot merge the LANs as LAN 1 is for data and LAN 2 is purely for the voice system with a voice switch.
- would not like to change address ranges, far too much work involved and business runs 24/7
Q: If I leave NIC 1 as is, working fine and well. If I plug in NIC 2 to LAN 2, can i setup a route so that if 192.168.1.2 is telnetted etc, the PC will select NIC 2 and probe the IP appropriately. Obviously I will ensure that 192.168.1.2 is not used on LAN 1
