IP Host-to-Host routing

IP Host-to-Host routing

Post by Duncan Thoma » Thu, 01 Feb 2001 20:43:46



Hello,

Can anyone tell me if its possible to do the following on a RedHat 5.2
machine....

I want to be able to automatically divert traffic from one host (a) to
another host (b) on another network from the originating host's network -
i.e. Packets destined for ip address 10.1.1.70 (a) are to be sent to
10.1.2.70 (b).

The default gateway on the machine (host a) is 10.1.1.254 and the local
network is 10.1.1.0

The default gateway on the machine (host b) is 10.1.2.254 and the local
network is 10.1.2.0

Is this possible? Can someone please help me and point me in the right
direction.

Many many thanks,
Duncan

 
 
 

1. Can't ping the host name or host IP address from host.

Hello there,
I have the unusual problem of not being able to ping the machines host name
or host IP address from the host.
I've checkout the network settings and I can't seem to find any problems.  I
am able to ping & telnet to the machine
from the network.  Seems quite strange.

Any help would be really appreciated.

thanks,

Owen.
