Basic Routing Problem

I have a Win2K workstation acting as a router with two NIC's - 10.1.1.163
255.255.255.0 & 10.2.2.14 255.255.255.0

Each of these NIC's is attached to a different hub.

On the hub that router NIC 10.1.1.163 links to I have a Win2K workstation :-
IP 10.1.1.59 255.255.255.0 default gateway 10.1.1.163.

On the hub that router NIC 10.2.2.14 links to I have another Win2K
workstaton:-
IP 10.2.2.238 255.255.255.0 default gateway 10.2.2.14
and a Redhat 8 box:-
IP 10.2.2.237 255.255.255.0 gateway 10.2.2.14.

From the workstation 10.1.1.59, I can ping both of the NIC's in the router
machine, but neither of the PC's on the other side.

Similarly from either 10.2.2.237 or 238 I can ping both the NIC's in the
router machine, but not the PC on the other side.

I seem to remember with NT4 acting as a two NIC'd router you had to set the
NIC's properties to 'Enable IP Routing'. I can't seem to find where you
enable this in Win2K and think this is why my router doesn't work properly?

Any clues appreciated

Obliged

You remember right, I have not used the same thing in Win 2000 but have
a look in the help for - Routing and Remote Access. Then again
www.google.com

To enable IP Routing on a Win 2K Server, you have to do it via the registry.
It's under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Services\Tcpip \Parameters

Select

IPEnableRouter: REG_DWORD: 0x0

and then assign a value of 1


Now, this may be a similar process for Win2k Pro- have a look.

That is a very user friendly command, it's the best one yet.
I thought there must be a GUI way to this, except there is not -

How daft can MS get? Well the answer is very.
