Are you sure that the configuration of the 7206 would let it forward packets
from the other network? Perhaps it only knows about it's attached network
(212.174.112/?) and it is refusing to let out packets whose source address is
from the 188.8.131.52/24 network?
Your situation sounds a little more complicated than mine. I have a single
firewall with a private IP DMZ. Real IPs from each of the attached networks
are assigned to the firewall, ports are forwarded as needed and the ip rules
dictate that traffic from a given internal server be masqueraded as a
specific IP and routed out a specific gateway. In all cases the default
route is a single hop.
