http://serverfault.com – Topology: C1 --192.168.111.0/24 -- R1 -- 172.30.0.0/24 -- Switch -- C6 |-- R2 -- 172.30.10.0/23 -- C5 I am a newbie in networking and I have a question about routing through subnets. I want to ping computer C5 from computer C1 (see below). If I want to do so, I have to define a static route on R1, because R1 knows only its direct connected subnets and not the other ones. Without a static route on R1, C5 is unreachable from C1. Static route on R1: Destination: 172.30.10.0 Subnetmask: 255.255.254.0 Gateway: 172.30.0.2 With this static rou (HowTos)
