Can Linux route on the same wire?

Can Linux route on the same wire?

Hi,

I have one physical network with class C and class
A network address groups on it.

I'm trying to route these two networks on the same
wire using a linux box as a router. ipforwarding is
confiured into the new kernel, but the hosts with
different network address cannot see each other.

There are two NICs in the box, and I am doing
something like

                      LAN
|---------------------------------------------------------|
           |                              |
           |                              |
           |                              |
           -----|   Linux    |--------
                 A             C

Is such a routing possible?

Should be no problems.  Check routing configs.  Check IP forwarding
switched on not just supported.

To improve efficiency through the use of ICMP redirects, remove one NIC
and compile kernel with IP aliasing support.

1. Telephone wire TWO WIRE null modem cable?

I want to make a serial connection between two computers in
the house using regular telephone lines.  I already have a TWO
WIRE telephone line between the two computers, but the
following diagrams asks for a ground (GND) connection, does
anyone know if this is really required, or if there's a way to
get around that third ground wire.  

Thanks.

Marc
