I use linux as a router connected to two subnets - 192.168.69.0 and
How do I forward broadcast messages between subnets?
Can 'ipchains' be used?
Thanks in advance,

You don't. Broadcasts will not be forwarded across subnets at all.
If you want to share resources amongst Win* machines, setup a SAMBA
server as WINS server.

The reason that you set up two subnets was to prevent broadcast messagesQuote:> I use linux as a router connected to two subnets - 192.168.69.0 and

If you don't like that, then make them one subnet (a netmask of
255.255.254.0 would accomodate the same number of hosts as your current two
Redhat 7.2 with 2 ethernet cards running as dhcp server and router on
PC1 - 192.168.2.2/24
eth0 - 192.168.2.1/24
eth1 - 192.168.3.1/24
PC2 - 192.168.3.2/24
So here's my problem. If I'm running a game server on PC1, why can't
PC2 see anything in the other network? Do I need to enable a static
route or something?
Network integrity as far as pings work all across the board. I just
can't seem to find any servers when I do a search.
When PC2 queries the network, from what I understand, it does a UDP
blast to the network to see if anyone responds. No one on his/her
subnet responds, and no servers are found. How can I expand this
scope to go over to the 192.168.2.x network?
Any help is appreciated,
