Static Routing between different buildings

NoobMaster1337

Level 1

Hi, I'm pretty new with Packet Tracer and I've got it so that the PC's ping between each other in Buildings however I can't seem to get the hang of getting PCs that are in different buildings to ping? any tips?

 

As an example, how would I get 107.44.128.5 to ping 107.44.129.66?

Thank you very much and apologies if I am posting in the wrong forum.

Each router is going to need to know how to get traffic from 104.22.194.64/26 to 104.22.194.0/27 in the form of routes (I'm guessing at the subnet masks since they were not listed in your post). The title of your post indicates that you are interested in doing static routes so lets start with that.

The syntax I'll be using for a static route is:

ip route [destination network] [destination subnet mask] [next hop IP address]

Each router along the path will need a static route indicating the path that traffic should go.

WAN Router Second Site will just need a single route because it already knows how to get to 104.22.194.64/26 due to it being locally configured:

ip route 104.22.194.0 255.255.255.224 104.22.195.129

WAN Router Main Site will need to know how to get both networks:

ip route 104.22.194.0 255.255.255.224 104.22.195.66
ip route 104.22.194.64 255.255.255.192 104.22.195.130

Bld B Router also needs two routes:

ip route 104.22.194.0 255.255.255.224 104.22.195.2
ip route 104.22.194.64 255.255.255.192 104.22.195.67

And lastly, RouterB 0 will only need a single static route since 104.22.194.0/27 is locally configured:

ip route 104.22.194.64 255.255.255.192 104.22.195.3

so long as all the interfaces are operational, correctly configured with the appropriate IP address, and the static routes configured, you should now be able to ping between both networks (buildings).

  • Hello,

You need routing, static or dynamic. Post the zipped Packet Tracer project (.pkt) file.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Someone replied with steps I should follow to do so, I can't provide the file as its more so for a project but my problem is solved now. Thank you again.

Hi, I appreciate your time. I've followed your steps and its working well, thank you very much. I'll continue these steps into configuring the rest of the packet tracer file.

Greetings we are here to help you, so that the devices can communicate between the buildings it is necessary to have some type of routing, either dynamic or static, you must have a Layer 3 device, for example a Router that creates communication between the devices.
