Hello all i am new to the cisco support community.
I have a bit of trouble in one of my cisco college classes, so i was hoping the community here could help. See our teacher has told us to mock up a network using packet tracer. We must connect a server, two routers, then a switch hooked up to four computers. The problem is none of us have any prior knowledge of how, and he didn't give us any instructions or help. I have connected everything, but i am having trouble with the routers. I am almost certain i have to use the Ip route command on the 1841 routers, i just have no idea how to use it.
Here are a list of my ip addresses:
Server - 192.168.254.254 /24
to Router 1- 192.168.254.253/24
Router 1 through serial connection - 10.10.10.6/30
To Router 2's Serial - 10.10.10.5/30 These are all same subnets
Then from Router 2's Ethernet i am hooked up to that switch and four computers
which is 172.16.255.254
I am able to ping every computer and Router 2 from one of my end computers. My problem is once i try to ping the outside address of Router 2, it's unreachable, so from any computer i cannot ping 10.10.10.5 or anything beyond to Router 1 or the Server. My question is how would i use ip route to connect this network? We have had no instruction or training on this and any help would be greatly appreciated! if anyone helps, thanks in advance!
If my picture doesn't explain it correctly or if you need more detail i can upload the picture again with captions, thanks!
Oh well im almost sure my addressing is correct, i just checked it again. But when you told me the ip route commands for router 1 and router 2, my R1 and R2 were the opposite routers. unless i assumed wrong and i am supposed to be doing exactly that. I keep getting the invalid next hop address. sorry for the confusion i am still really new at this!
On the router that connects to the server -
ip route 172.16.255.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.10.x (where 10.10.10.x is the other routers serial interface IP)
on router that connects to LAN switch -
ip route 192.168.254.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.10.y (where 10.10.10.y is the other routers serial interface IP)
