I have setup an old c836 router for my private dsl connection and going my first steps into the cisco world. A very basic configuration (with nat) looks working fine, but on some points i am not really sure (about a proper config).
eth0 is in use as lan interface with ip nat inside on network 192.168.1.0.
eth2 is setup with ip adress 192.168.254.1 on network 192.168.254.0 AND directly connected to a adsl 2+ device with ip 192.168.254.2 .
I have also added interface Dialer0 (on eth2) that use ip nat outside and PPPOE to establish my internet adsl connection.
My frist problem is now that i cant connect from network 192.168.1.0 through the router to the IP adress 192.168.254.2 which should be reachable over eth2 interface.
I can directly ping 192.168.254.1 (ip directly added on eth2) but i cant ping to IP 192.168.254.2
Is a static routing required? Imho the router "know" that network 192.168.254.0 is reachable on its eth2 interface. Do i think wrong about that?
I guess i have a problem maybe because a missing ACL (and the router block traffic to network 192.168.254.0).
I hope i can get a helping hand here.
