I am stumped with an issue that has been going on with 2 servers that I am working with. Bear with me as I try to give the best description possible.....
Right now I have a server running with 2 NIC cards in it on with the following configurations:
NIC 1: 192.168.1.220
NIC 2: 192.168.2.100
The first NIC card broadcasts points/data to the .1 network while the .2 network builds an arhitecture of another 30 devices. Right now only 2 devices are in place (.107 and .108). Using software on my server I see all my devices on the .2 network. There is another workstation on the .1 network (192.168.1.100) that reads the points that my server broadcasts (via BACnet). All these points can be read fine and 100% as they broadcast from NIC1.
The issue comes with seeing any device on the .2 network from the workstation on the .1 network. The "idea" was for the user on the workstation to be able to access the system on the .2 network via a web portal without needing to access 2 separate computers to do their work. For reference, the "web portal" is actually just browsing to the 184.108.40.206 address via IE or Firefox.....No actual web/internet access exists. Its just a portal across a local network. When the user accesses the web portal from the workstation (.1.100) it can open the site software but all of the .2 network devices show a comm fail. With the subnet set up the way it is, there should be no issue with the third octet of the IP address being different.
On my server, I can see all devices via the web portal with no issues. The technician on the site has created the following network install:
A local Blackbox LB005 switch houses a connection to each of the devices - NIC 1, NIC 2, 107, and 108
The blackbox switch then has a CAT-5 cable running to a router which jumps over to the .1 network.
As a test to rule out any sort of loop back issues, I disabled NIC 2 so only NIC 1 and the 2 other devices the only addresses communicating to the switch. I attempted to use the "web portal" from my server and I could not see anything on the .2 network even though its all connected to the same switch.
The goal is to allow the .1 workstation to see/communicate with all the devices on the .2 network. I have a feeling that Blackbox switch is not an intelligent switch and needs to be upgraded, but there could be something else going on in my settings. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
