Setting up NT 4 Workstation as a router

By craig.kalan ·
I have a multihomed NT4 Workstation with 2 NICS in. I have been trying to set it up as a router/gateway. The subnets are the same ie. 255.255.255.0 and the IP addresses are private and as follows... 192.168.12.6 and 192.168.13.1. I have IP routing enabled and RIP installed but when I traceroute to the 192.168.12.x range it stops after 192.168.13.1. What am I doing wrong?

Setting up NT 4 Workstation as a router

Perhaps the default gateway is not properly identified? You may need to set up static routing on the workstation to make sure the packets have the correct gateway address for each subnet. Use route add at the command prompt to add 192.168.12.6 as the default gateway for the 192.168.12.x network and 192.168.13.1 as the default gateway for the 192.168.13.x network. This is assuming that these are the only two networks you need to route. If you are in the situation that you need to route all non-local packets from one network to the other, then just set up one NIC with a default gateway and leave the other one blank. Hope this helps!

I found the answer with help from a friend at an associated co.
The problem was the path back wasn't defined on the router on the one side of the network.
