Routing

By lhatcher ·
I am trying to setup an email server running redhat 3. The server has two nics, one with an ip address for the lan, 192.168.1.x range. The other is assigned a public ip address from our isp. I can ping the second nic only from the lan. No connection from anywhere else. I very inexperienced with routing, but I know I am probably missing something stupid. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You should be able to ping the 192.168.1.xxx range from the local network. As far as the external private IP from the ISP, you may not be able to ping it from other pc's because ICMP packets may not be allowed through the routers at the ISP.

hey boy , i guess you are pretty confused the ip range which you r using for your internal lan that is 192.168.1.xx is a private range and this can't be accessed from any other location . but by the way what is the requirement of pinging this network from outside?

Thanks for the help guys, I figured it out. The nic with the public ip was routing everything to the internal ip address nic.
