Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT] Pinging two devices on the same IP address
Date: Tue, 23 Oct 2007 21:09:54
1 Hi All,
3 I am trying to troubleshoot two devices both behind the same IP address:
5 Device A: a router
6 Device B: a wireless access point
8 The network looks like this:
10 Internet >> modem >> router >> AP
12 Currently I have set up a firewall rule in the router to forward all pings to
13 the AP. The logic is that if the ping returns then both router and AP are
14 up.
16 That's alright when both devices are working. However, if I am interested to
17 know which one of the two has failed, a different system is needed. Any idea
18 how I could ping them both separately? Is there a clever firewall rule I
19 could concoct?
