This is the basic setup. The goal is to get Host 2 to use Host 1's second NIC to connect to the internet without using any special routing software or anything on Host 1.
What I can do: Configure static routing tables for both Cisco-routers and Host 1/2.
What I can't do: Configure the router at 192.168.60.1 and use dynamic routing on the Cisco routers. What I was able to achieve: Ping 192.168.60.71 (Host 1s 2nd NIC) from 192.168.90.1 (Host 2's NIC) directly.
Were I got stuck: Ping 192.168.60.1 from 192.168.90.1
What I did:
- Told Cisco 2 about 192.168.90.0 via Ethernet, 192.168.2.0 via Serial and 192.168.13.0 via 192.168.2.2 (Cisco 1) aswell as 0.0.0.0 via Serial.
- Told Cisco 1 about 192.168.13.0 via Ethernet, 192.168.2.0 via Serial, 192.168.90.0 via 192.168.2.1 (Cisco 2) and 0.0.0.0 via 192.168.13.37 aswell as specifically 192.168.60.0 via 192.168.13.37 (probably not neccessary)
- And last I added routes on Host 1 for 192.168.60.0 via NIC 2 aswell as 0.0.0.0 via 192.168.60.1.
I feel I'm so close to solving this, but I seem to bang my head against a wall, adding unneccessary routes and not really solving the issue.
Both Hosts run Windows XP.
I would be SO glad for some help here, this is exciting for me (especially since I'm more the programming type) and the fact I can ping 192.168.60.71 from 192.168.90.1 already got me extra credits from my teacher, but I basically promised him I was able to make Host 2 go into the internet via Host 1, and I intend to show everyone the solution.
