static routes

Hi,

 

I'm trying to set up a static route but for some reason I can't get it to work.

My current network looks like this:

The static route I added:

Set it as private since it only needs to work on lan (tried Active and both of them also). The metric I think should 1 instead of 2 if I can believe all the things I read about static routes ... but it won't let me set it less then 2.

 

The server has domain controller, dns, dhcp (distributing ip's 10.*.*.*), routing (nat between the 2 interfaces so that clients can access the internet). The clients (10.*...) can ping machine on the 192.168.2.* network.

But when I connect to the wifi of the r7000, I can't ping a client.

 

Can someone tell me what I'm missing here?

 

ps: don't want to disable dhcp on the r7000 since I don't want the server directly on the internet, I have a isp modem (not a router).

 

Best regards

   "Active" sounds as if it ought to be set, doesn't it?  Help Center on
my D7000 says:

      4. Select Active to make this route effective.

I'd vote for that as the big problem.

   I don't know what "Select Private if you want to limit access to the
LAN only" means.  I've never set it.  (Something to do with RIP (which
is disabled here?))

   Same here, but 2 works.

   That's a little scary.  Routing is one thing; NAT is something else.
You want (unspecified) "Server" to route between 192.168.2.x and
10.*.*.*.  I suppose that NAT by "Server" could make sense.  (Unless I
had a zillion "Clients", I'd probably have picked 10.0.0.*
(255.255.255.0) for that internal subnet, but no matter.)

> But when I connect to the wifi of the r7000, I can't ping a client.

   What do you get for IP address, gateway, and so on on a typical
wireless device?  Have you tried anything other than "ping"?  Telnet?
traceroute?
