Re: logical subnet overlaying...
Hi, Kyle--you'll probably get *lots* of responses to your question, but I haven't seen any yet, so I apologize if this turns out to be a duplicate. don't worry about IOS versions--this has been supported in IOS since before it was even *called* IOS! what you'll end up with is TWO "ip address" lines in your configuration, one for the primary ip address and one for the additional (which cisco calls "secondary") one. in general, the syntax is: int eth 0 0 ip addr <primary ip address> <primary ip address's mask> ip addr <second ip addr> <second ip addr's mask> secondary in your case, the lines would look like (assuming you're using the first available address in your block for your router--put the right thing in): int eth 0 0 ip addr 126.96.36.199 255.255.255.192 ! this is the config you already had ip addr 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.224 secondary ! this is your new one then user devices can use addresses out of either block on that Ethernet. Note, however, that if a user on the first subnet wants to talk to a device in the second subnet range their traffic will go to the router and then back to the Ethernet to the destination, since the source doesn't know that the destination is on the same wire as he is. Hope that helps, Brent Sweeny Indiana University On Thu, Nov 12, 1998 at 11:20:12PM -0700, Kyle D. Smith wrote: > hello.
