Sounds like IP forwarding is not enabled on the XP box. Not sure where this is - I know there's aregistry entry somewhere. Try googling for IP packet forwarding and see what comes up.

I need to connect two separate networks, both with assigned public IP

gateways for cipe networking.

Net A          Router A    internet      Router B         Net B
192.168.10.--||-------------||---- 192.168.1.
             ||             ||
                   CIPE 1.                   CIPE 2
               (Linux - RH9)              (Win XP Pro)

Gateway A and Gateway B CIPE interfaces see each other. Every host on
net A can see CIPE 2 interface as well as address (they are
on the same computer). Gateway B can see every host on Net A. The
problem are the other computers on Net B, because they can't see CIPE 1
interface. So if I ping (CIPE 2) from any host on net B they
can see it, but they can't see (CIPE 1). Also, none of the
computers on Net A can see anything beyond

Router B (Win XP)
- Router B is set up as default gateway for each computer on Net B
- Router B route for Net A is set up as:
route add mask

Router A (Linux)
- Router A is set up as default gateway for each computer on Net A
- Router A route for Net B is set up as
route add -net netmask gw

Obviously I am missing something, but what? I think problem is in XP,
can it work as a router this way, or I have to set something else up?
Tnx in advance.
