    Virtual router is't what i'm looking for also it did't work correctly with me anyway...What's i'm lookin for is this :

    If i have two NICs one on this subnet 192.168.1.0/24 and the other on 192.168.2.0/24 on the SAME PC how can i enable people on those subnets to communicate with each other ?


    thank you

    thank you
    I believe I have already explained that this is not possible, you need a router to create routes between subnets. No matter how many times you ask it won't change this fact.

    Raafat, I did not understand your reference to "Virtual Router" was meant to imply the bridging operation.

    But if you need to use an external device, a router or possibly some other type of device may be needed, as chev65 mentions. Do you have two routers you could try? I have not yet set such a system up but could test if you wanted.
