I have two networks that I need to communicate with, but I can't seem to figure out the routing. I've attached a stripped-down diagram that represents what I'm trying to do. I've had this issue before and I can't remember how to fix it. I think I need a static route somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Simply, Kit 1 needs bidirectional communication with Kit 2. It's currently not working.
Kit 1 and Kit 2 represent many Windows systems. I'm just showing my test systems as those are the one's I can play with. R1 and R2 are routers. I have complete admin rights to every device. All routing to the Internet works fine. All firewalls are off on the routers and the Windows boxes, for now.
Kit 1 can ping anything on its subnet, including R1, the uplink on R2 (172.24.15.11) and the inside of R2 (192.168.1.1), but it cannot ping and other address on 192.168.1.0/24.
Kit 2 can ping anything anything on its subnet and on the 172.24.15.0/24 subnet; although this may be deceiving as I can only seem to get ICMP responses. I can't seem to actually connect to anything via HTTP, SSH, etc.
Troubleshooting: (none of this resolved the issue)
I tried to add a static route of 192.168.1.0 -> 172.24.15.11. I also tried 192.168.1.0 -> 192.168.1.1 for fun.
I tried to add a static route of 192.168.1.0 -> 172.24.15.11.
I tried to add a static route of 172.24.15.0 -> 172.24.15.1. I don't think this is necessary as the router should know where to send this traffic.
As I mentioned, none of the troubleshooting has resolved the issue. I have removed the route on R2, but the routes on Kit 1 and R1 remain.
Thank you for any suggestions. I can quickly attempt any troubleshooting.
