Here is what the network looks like:

Network A is 192.168.116.X , subnet  
Network B is 12.32.8.X , subnet

There are no routers present in either of the network schemes. All routing is done through unmanaged switches and hubs. Both networks are peer-to-peer and do not rely on DHCP. All machines have static IPs.

I need any machine on Network B to be able to reach any node on Network A

  • Please explain more how your environment looks like.

    Are both networks already behind the same router?

On the gateway for each network you add a route to the other subnet.


You should have PC that connect both networks. Next you need to setup forwarding on this PC. For manual you can use this tread - Routing between two networks on linux?


you can create a cheap router, take one pc and add one more network card. 1 card will has 192.168.116.X the other one will have 12.32.8.X

you have to make ip forwarding ( i recommend you to install ubuntu)
