We recently converted our home to wireless, orphaning 2 hp-jetdirect
printers. I would like to make them accessible by wiring them to one of
our computers. Here is what I did:

Our wireless network has addresses 192.168.. with the server being
192.168.0.2. I ran a cable to one printer from our server from the internet
card, assigning it the ip number 10.0.0.1/24 and naming 10.0.0.1 as
gateway. I attached the jetdirect to this card as 10.0.0.5 and everything
works fine from the server. But how do I access this 10.0.. net from
another computer?

I tried telling another machine that it could reach 10.0.. via the gateway
192.168.0.2 and no luck. It can ping 10.0.0.1, the card, but it can't
ping the 10.0.0.5 printer. I tried adding a route to 10.0.0.5/32 gateway
10.0.0.1 to the other computer's routing table, but no go.

I have the same failure to reach 10.0.0.5 whether or not IP forwarding is
turned on at the server 192.168.0.2.

Grateful for any help.......
