Two LANs

by Alpha-Male In reply to Two LANs

If you need to do it without hardware and you don't have a router or layer-3 switch, what you need is to set up a software router. You'll need to take a system that is connected to both networks and have it route the packets in between them.

Take a look here for a basic description of doing this in Win 2K:

Good luck...hope this helps.
