Trying to Ping a Computer Through the ER-X Router

Hello,

 

I am trying to do something that I think should be simple but since I am a network and Edgerouter novice I may not be unaware of conditions that need to be met before things will work.

 

I have a test computer set to 192.168.1.10, 255.255.255.0 connected to the ER-X on eth1.

 

I have another computer that is set to 192.168.10.254 - I don't know anything more about it than that. It is connected to the ER-X on eth0. The connections are shown in the attached drawing.

 

All I want to do is ping 192.168.10.254 from 192.168.1.10 through the ER-X to confirm that the pathway is valid. I tried putting in a Source NAT rule and Destination NAT rule but had no success.

 

The router is not configured - do I need to run one of the configuration wizards or should the NAT rules be enough?

 

If I change the test computer's IP address to 192.168.10.100 and plug it into the other computer's Ethernet port I can ping 192.168.10.254 so I know that the computer will respond to a ping.

 

The config.boot file containing the NAT rules is attached as well.

 

If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate hearing it.


Thank you.

Run the basic wizard, otherwise, set an ip address that belongs to the 192.168.10.0/24 network on eth0, then, only a simple NAT/masquerade rule on eth0, without declaring source or destination address, should allow the ping from the pc 192.168.1.10 to the pc 192.168.10.254.

Cheers,
