FW: Some problem????...
I try to connect with "illegal" 192.168.10.x (Net2) network to a "legal"
196.25.147.x (Net1) network with an analog leased line and PPP:
I configured A-PPP with address 192.168.11.1 and B-PPP with address
192.168.11.2. Machine A runs masquerading for 192.168.11.0 network. Machine
B talks to internet without any problems but the rest of the Net2 does not
even want to see A-PPP address. Something must be done with routing on B
machine but .... what? :))) Or the whole idea is a bit stuffed up? Any
suggestions will be appreciated.
Routing table on machine "B"
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
192.168.11.1 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0
localnet * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 14
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 9 lo
default 192.168.11.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 2
Interesting thing that (out of desperation) after I enabled masquerading
for the Net2 everything seems to be working fine except.... SMTP connection
to my "smart" host on 196.25.147.x is timing out all the time and most
messages are waiting in the que indefinitely :(((
