Need help with routing
I have 2 application servers and they are directly connected to a SAN without a switch.
The SAN server has dual network card
172.16.16.1 --[ SAN DUAL NIC ] -- 172.16.16.2
APP1 is able to ping SAN on 172.16.16.1, however I'm not able to reach SAN from APP2.
I'm not really sure why its not working, but if I change the subnet to be as the following
Both servers are able to talk to SAN box.
172.16.16.1 --[ SAN DUAL NIC ] -- 192.168.1.2
My question will be how can I enable route between APP1 APP2? right now they work, but they can't talk to each other since they are on different subnet.
Your help is highly appreciated.
You probably want to:
* let APP1 be in the subnet1 172.16.16.0/24
* let APP2 be in the subnet2 172.16.17.0/24
* route packets from subnet1 into subnet2 and vice-versa; normally this is done with the route command, i.e. something like:
~@ route add -net 172.16.16.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev nic1
~@ route add -net 172.16.17.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev nic2
