Unable to ping other class-C networks.
Here is our setup:
Our layout is fairly simple. We have 13 branches connected by frame relay to a central office. The central office uses addresses in the 192.168.1.0/24 scheme. Each branch uses 192.168.2.0 thru 192.168.14.0 respectively. Each branch and central office use a Cisco 2500 series router to connect. The branches have no servers, so all servers reside on the 192.168.1.0 network. The central office router was originally setup for the branches to connect by telnet to a single Unix server at the central office (before my time). Our central office router is owned by our ISP, so we are unable to make changes without lots of "red tape". To work around this problem, we added routes to each Win2k server to reach the other networks. When we replaced one of these Win2k servers with a Linux, we tried to add routes to it similar to its predecessor. We thought we should be able to ping the branch networks once this was done, but all replies time-out. Our other servers can still ping the networks with no problem. We're a bit mystified at this point. Any help would be appreciated. :-?
