Hi! I'm trying to set up a local network on my mac by using the following method: Code: ifconfig en1 192.168.20.14 netmask 255.255.255.248 broadcast 192.168.20.20 And my network becomes: Code: Network address: 192.168.20.13 Broadcast: 192.168.20.20 IP: 192.168.20.14 Mask: 255.255.255.248 Which works fine and I'm able to ping to my ip 192.168.20.14 as its the lo0. What I'm trying to do now is use this network to access the internet so I try to route all the packets to the router available at 192.168.0.1 I have tried everything and it does not see the router at all. As I understand I need to route the packets starting with 192.168.20 to the network that router is broadcasting: Code: route add -net 192.168.20 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 Firewall is off just in case it blocks traffic. Any ideas? Thx in advance!
