    connecting two networks


    hi!

    LAN A (172.22.1.x) is directly connected to Japan via 256kbps leased line. this is so because we have an application (not web based) whose database is in Japan.

    LAN B (192.168.0.x) is our internal private network. LAN A needs to access the intranet in LAN B.

    is NAT the way to go with this? could you point me to any documentation related to this?

    thank you!

    No no, you should consider setting up your linux as a router, if the box only has the responsibility to route between those networks, and you don't need to set any restrictions, you should be fine with any preffered linux distro, and you have to install "routed" as well.

    If you are about to set up a more complex routed scenario, you should have a look at the Zebra Project where you will find a good RIP/OSPF/BGP router.
