Using Linux to connect two network.


I have Cisco Switch 2960, and it has been configured with dhcp ( from 192.168.43.31 to 192.168.43.) and all my client connected to It. I have a modem and Its IP is 192.168.1.1, I used Fedora Linux system in between Modem and Switch , and made IP forwarding ( Only one ethernet port is avaliable in Fedora Linux System), so that I can use the Internet through out the LAN


But When I try to ping modem form client system, I get an message icmp_sep=1109 Redirect Host: ( New nexthop: 192.168.1.1),

I am not able to connect Internet from my Client system.


If you have any Idea tell me

When you say, "I have a modem," do you mean, "I have a router"?

i think rg14 means his computer is set up as the router.

modem -> host computer (router) -> switch -> client computer (no internet connection)

im sure you've checked all the connections, if not that should be the first thing to do

i'm guessing the host computer just isn't set up correctly for connection sharing. Do you have a firewall??
