    subnet not seeing router

    I currently have a Netware file server and a bordermanager server. Both
    w/ 6. I am going to be replacing the bordermanager server w/ a cisco pix
    router. It will act as a router to the internet and as a DHCP server.
    The routers address will be 192.168.1.1. I have everything working except
    that I have a subnet that gets its IP addresses from my file server. The
    subent is 192.168.2.0. The file servers ip address is 192.168.1.253. The
    file server gets it's ip from the router and is able to ping the router.
    Any pc on the 192.168.2.0 can not see the router but can ping the file
    server. I need the pc's on the subnet to be able to see the router so
    they can route through their to get their internet connection. What do I
    need to do.

    Sorry to disappoint you, PIX can't be a router. It's a firewall.

    How is the 192.168.2.x subnet connected to your LAN ?
    Is it connected to the same switch as the 192.168.1.x subnet ?
    If you have a single switch servicing multiple subnets, are you breaking
    the switch into multiple VLANs or single VLAN ?

    Re: subnet not seeing router

    I guess I am using the term router incorrectly.

    I have a fiber card in my file server which is connected to a switch. All
    of the connections on that switch are given a 192.168.2.1 ip. I also have
    another nic card in my main server that plugs into my "main" switch. The
    pix's router is also plugged into this switch. I guess what I am hoping
    to accomplish is that if my 192.168.2.1 subnet can see the pix it will go
    out through it to get to the internet.

    All devices in the 192.168.2.x should have the default gateway pointing
    to the IP address of the NetWare server connected on that segment.
    At the server, enable IP Routing within INETCFG
    In the PIX, you need to have a 'route add' for the 192.168.2.x network
    & the gateway on that route add should be the server NIC on 192.168.1.x
    segment. Also in the PIX, you need to include the 192.168.2.x network
    in the global NAT command.
