SECTION: Configure Network services and Access
OBJECTIVE: Routing ONLY
Suppose that the public facing network adapter is assigned to a private IP address, e.g., 192.168.0.1, on the subnet 192.168.0.0/24, instead of 126.96.36.199. Is it possible to ping from DC to an public IP address,.e.g, 188.8.131.52 (which is IP address of the google.com), given that NAT is not configured on this scenario. When I tried this, I could ping from DC to any machine that belong to 192.168.0.0/24 subnet but not any public IP address. What is wrong here? I checked the routing table on EDGE machine, and it showed as follows:
My physical host machine uses 192.168.0.1 as a default gateway to access Internet. From the screenshot above on Persistence Routes, I thought the second entry would route packet from any network, including pubic network, to default gateway which can route the packet to destined public IP address, Would you please clarify the what Persistent Routes exactly is doing here?
Also I am wondering how you can assign a network adapter interface to an public IP address. Given that I have a modem and a router, should I disable NAT feature on both modem and router so that ISP would directly assign one of my network adapter interface of the EDGE machine to an public IP address?
Thank you for your instruction,
