setup remote network using same subnet as host

Unanswered Question
Aug 28th, 2008

I have a simple network. My host is in 192.168.1.0 network. I have a T1 connect to my remote network that I assign 192.168.10.0; Due to some of my legacy device doesn't do routing. I need to put both my remote and host in the same subnet (192.168.1.0); What changes I need to make to make this to work? By the way, my T1 line is working (192.168.14.0). Help please!! I need this work quick. Thanks!!!

Donald,

You need to configure transparent bridging:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/bridging/configuration/guide/br_transprnt_brdg_ps6350_TSD_Products_Configuration_Guide_Chapter.html

basically, on both routers you execute:

bridge 1 protocol ieee

then remove the IP addresses on both WAN and LAN and assign bridge group 1 on those interfaces. IP Routing must be disabled and you need to keep in mind, you are extending your Layer2 broadcast domain over an unreliable and slow WAN link.

Please proceed with care.

I strongly recommend investigating how to make the legacy application work in a routed environment or replace the application altogether.

Bridging over the WAN is something to be avoided at all costs.

There are two options that I can also try:

nat everything from 192.169.10.X network to 192.168.1.X

Or

USE IPSEC-VPN between two sites.

If I do Nat, what change I need to make? Thanks

NAT won't work as traffic originated in 192.168.1.x with destination to another 192.168.1.x will remain local and won't get to the router performing the NAT.

IPSec VPN does not allow you to bridge networks. A VPN is often created to connect networks in a secured manner, it's not designed to bridge networks.
