accessing on a different subnet


so, the guy before me at this job setup two centOS 5.5 boxes. one he put on 172.10.2.0/24 and the other he put behind it on 192.168.0.0/24. Is there any way to bridge or cheat or otherwise be able to access the 192 machine through the 172 machine without having to ssh to the first machine and then from there to the second? I understand that sort of defeats the purpose (which I assume is security) of the setup but, there's no other way around it right now.

There IS, but without knowing what's between the two machines, it's hard to say.

That's a simple network routing issue...so, somewhere, you have to tell the 172 machine which route to take, to get to the 192 machine. This could be done at the switch level behind the scenes, or a network could be added on one/both of the Linux boxes. Best thing would be to find out details from the network team, and ask how they'd address it. They may want to/need to address such things at the switch level, or they may want it to be done on the server. Don't guess, though, since you could cause lots of problems on your network by doing something wrong.
