Create a test lan

I have a lan with a 1720 router and a pix 515 on a subnet

I have a linksys 8 port router RV082.the WAN ip on the RV082 is the inside lan is, I have a cable pluged into the internet port and this plugged into a switch on Lan. I can access the WWW from the new no problems. I would like to access the 2 servers in the new lan from my workstation the on lan using RDP. I have put this line in the 1720 router

ip route

What else do I need to do to gett access



Re: Create a test lan

Could you clarify the connectivity between three devices ?

e.g. PIX ( connects to both 1720 & Linksys at same LAN segment ? What is the IP address assignement in 1720 ? Why require the static route in 1720 if the linksys provides the routing function already ?

Please provide all equipment IP address assignment then we can provide comment.

Hope this helps.

Re: Create a test lan

Pix, all internet trafic goes through the pix. 1720, this connects our others subnets through a frame relay connection. both of these are connected to a switch 192,.168.1.55

Linksys RV082 Wan port the Lan port this is also connected to the same switch. I have a test server connected to the lan side of the RV082. The reason I added the static route in the 1720 because I was not able to connect the test server from my workstation on the subnet. Also I am unable to ping the of the linksys box.


Re: Create a test lan

Thanks the info. It makes me clear.

You are correct to add the static route in 1720.

Did you configure the default gateway for hosts in 192.168.0.x (i.e. gateway = & default gateway for hosts in 192.168.1.x (i.e. GW =

If you cannot ping from 192.168.1.x to Linksys interface, it may due to the Linksys block the ICMP.

If you cannot ping from 192.168.0.x to LS, it may due to the default GW of hosts in 192.168.0.x.

And, try to check if the Linksys blocked some ports for RDP or any required application. Sorry I have no idea of the port number of RDP, you may need to check it by the vendor or any doc. come w/ the software.

Moreove do you mean the LAN switch is segemented (e.g.) for two subnets ? It will still work if you have no segmentation, however, I suggest to segment it for two subnets to prevent any looping or spanning tree issue.

Hope this helps.
