Subject: Bridging two networks, need broadcast
From: John Gonzalez/netMDC admin <ekool,AT,ns1,DOT,netmdc,DOT,com>

I need to bridge two remote networks together, and broadcast traffic has
to be forwarded.

I have a linux box located on the network with an eth0 and an eth0:1
virtual interface. The internet routable IP is eth0 and eth0:1 has an ip
in the 192.168.1.X range.

I have an extra linux box here on my network and need some windows boxes
to be able to have IP addresses in the 192.168.1.X range, and broadcast
traffic needs to work between them.

(please, dont ask why, long story)

Now, i dont quite understand the documentation. Does the cpidb0 device
need to have the same IP as the 192.168.1.X eth device for it to forward
packets across the link properly?

I have gotten it setup so i can ping (which i assigned as
the cpidb0 device on one end) from (which i assigned as the
cpidb0 device on the other end) -- but no matter what route statements i
use, i cant get beyond that. Which, im sure i'm doing something wrong
since doing an add route -net would require me to have two gateways.

Please, any advice is appreciated.
