  1. Router Question

    I have a 5 computers. Two of them are directly connected to a Belkin
    Router. The 3 other computers are connected to a Linksys Router that
    is connected to the Belkin router. How do I communicate (specifcally
    SFTP) from a computer on the Belkin Router to one of the computers on
    the Linksys router?

    Some more specific details in case it helps.

    Belkin Router IP: 192.168.2.1
    Belkin Connected Computer IP: 192.168.2.3
    Linksys Router IP: 192.168.2.5
    IP computers connected to
    Linksys see Linksys router as: 192.168.1.1
    Linksys Connnected Computer IP: 192.168.1.100

    Trying to connect from 192.168.2.3 to 192.168.1.100.

    --Thanks in advance.
    Sachin

    The Belkin router needs a route for 192.168.1.0/24 via 192.168.2.5.

  3. Re: Router Question

    My stupid Belkin router doesn't have an advanced routing feature that
    allows me to do this. Is there anyway to do it from the host? --Plus,
    the computer connected to the Belkin is Windows Xp. (All other
    computers are FreeBSD).

    Use the "ROUTE" command on the host.

  5. Re: Router Question

    Thanks for the help Barry. Just had another stupid question that I
    hoped you could help with.

    I tried your suggestion of using route on the host but I must be doing
    somethign wrong.

    I tried (on Windows XP):

    route ADD 192.168.1.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 198.168.2.5

    and it didnt work. Any suggestions?

    First, please don't top-post.

    Is the Linksys router also a firewall and NAT? You need to turn off its
    firewall and NAT features, so it's just a plain router.
