ive got a problem, which from what im reading, is not an islolated one.
Currently we have 1 RV042 which provides Internet Traffic for 192.168.16.x/24, in addition to this I also have a test environment sitting in VMware that exists on 192.168.0.x/24. Due to the nature of the test environment, and to ensure that no DHCP traffic (amongst others) leaves the test environment, I have a Linux router which routes between 192.168.0.x/24 and 192.168.16.x/24. For those that understand VMware, the test vSwitch does not have any uplinks, all traffic in and out of the test environment must go through the Linux Router.
I have a additional route specificed in the RV042 for the 192.168.0.x subnet using the Linux router as the G/w.
All machines in the test environment can ping/route/connect to machines in the production network, and vice versa (RV042 inc).
All machines in the Prod environment can access the Internet through the RV042 (both on the 192.168.16.x subnet).
The machines in the Test environment cannot access the Internet through the RV042, however they can ping the internal (192.168.16.x) interface of the RV042.
Ive investigated using the Multi-Subnet feature of the RV042 and also homing it on the 192.168.0.x subnet, however this will not work as the 192.168.0.x machines cannot access the physical network without going through the Linux Router and terminating on the 192.168.16.x subnet.
See Diagram below for clearer idea. Keep in mind that Multi-home the RV042 on the 192.168.0.x network is not an option!!!
