Configuring redhat 9 to pass traffic betwen 2 private networks (gateway)


Hello,

I am a fairly new Lunux user.

I am trying to setup a test netork as follows:

172.16.4.0 ---> | eth0_inside (172.16.4.2)-- Redhat 9 Box -- eth1_toRouter (172.16.3.10)| ---> router (172.16.3.4)

eth0_inside IP is 172.16.4.2. The default gateway has the eth1_toRouter's IP 172.16.3.10.

eth1_toRouter IP is 172.16.3.10 and its default gateway is the
router's IP 172.16.3.4.

I edited the sysctl.conf file in /etc to put a value of '1' to
net.ipv4.ip_forward. I rebooted the machine.

Result:

I can ping both interfaces, the router, and the inside hosts
from the linux box.

The hosts can ping only up to eth1_toRouter (172.16.3.10). Not
beyond that.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Some output:

[root@localhost log]# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

I can't tell from reading your post what the contents of
/etc/sysconfig/network are, on the RH9 box. The line which
starts GATEWAY= should have the address 172.16.3.4, the
address of your router (not the machine's eth1 number).

OK!

The hosts can ping only up to eth1_toRouter (172.16.3.10). Not
beyond that.


OK!

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

The routing tables from your linux box look correct based on your network description. But you have not shown the routing tables from the router at 172.16.3.4. Based on the above mentioned results, it sounds like the router at 172.16.3.4 does not know how to route packets (like ACKS) back to network 172.16.4.0/24. i.e. via 172.16.3.10
