routing questions!!


i am in lost. pls help...i need some concepts here..

i have 2 gateways. one gateway for internet (let's called it IGW), and another one is for office LAN in another location (let's called it OGW).

ok, majority of my clients are windows 98. these computers dont the way to route, if they want go for internet, they also dont the way route to office LAN.

should i work out a DHCP server with routing rules? such that, all the windows 98 clients get routing rules, then, they will know how to route?

previously, we were using winsock server and winsock client.. now, we determine to get rid of this "proprietary" products from M$. and now, i dont know how route the clients ....

what should i do? i am really stucked. pls give me some pointers here.

Okay, the solution here is simple, if I am to understand your problem correctly.

You need to make the two routers be aware of each other and route their subnets to each other.
DO NOT toy around with the DHCP settings or the clients -- networking should be handled by whatever you are using as routers.

IGW Network:
OGW Network:

on the IGW router, it has something like: routes to (orwhatever your internet gateway is)

It also needs to have: routes to eth0 (or however it connects to OGW)

OGW needs to have: routes to eth0 (or however it connects to IGW)

Also, you could play around with RIP, which comes with most OSes. I suggest searching google for that information though.
