I have a small lab setup, below (see network diag) I have the settings of my 2 Cisco 2610 routers connected via serial and a switch and LAN where my laptop is (192.168.2.14). I was wondering how I can get "router 0" to be able to ping 10.10.10.1 on "router 1". If I add "ip route 10.10.10.0 255.255.255.0 172.30.1.2" to "router 0" then all works and I'm sure if I add "ip route 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0 172.30.1.1" to router 1 then that will make that subnet able to be pinged from "router 1".
I will add another 1 or 2 routers later, but is there away I don't have to add these static routes and get these 2 routers to advertise (no neighbours) there subnets/interface IP ranges? If I add router 2 and 3 on from router how can I make R0, R1,R2 and R3 talk to each other?
LAN is 192.168.2.0/24
RO-2610 (Router 0 Cisco 2610)
ip address 192.168.2.225 255.255.255.0
ip address 172.30.1.1 255.255.255.0
no ip address
R1-2610 (Router 1 Cisco 2610)
ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.0
ip address 172.30.1.2 255.255.255.0
no ip address
>> do I just add the Ethernet range and not the serial?
it is the opposite to have the routers talk RIP between them and use it to build the routing table they need to share a common segment so if it is the serial you need the network command for net 172.30.0.0
otherwise the RIP messages are not exchanged among them.
I would suggest to read
Hope to help
