The power of Static Routing

With the complex of networks nowadays. Network administrators face problems when they don't have the right tools at the right time. LAN networks are simple Ethernet Protocol. All workstation are just connected in a single switch. How then if you have multiple networks connected on one or two cascade.

And the other network is connected on the internet with the default gateway? How do you add another gateway in order for the traffic to route on that network?

Static routing came handy in this case. Let me clarify better.

So you have Network 1.
IP Address: 192.168.3.0
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.3.254

Router DMZ IP address: 172.16.3.254
Router LAN IP address: 192.168.3.254

Network 2

IP Address: 172.16.3.0
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 172.16.3.0


Network 1 has internet connection via the Router LAN.


Now in order for the 172.16.3.0 network to communicate in the Network 1. we will add a static route to the workstations with this syntax. on the command prompt, type.

Route add 172.16.3.0 255.255.255.0 172.16.3.254

and there you have it.

If you want to have the route save even when you restart the pc just add -p at the end.

Route add 172.16.3.0 255.255.255.0 172.16.3.254 -p
