Not being a networking expert...what does this mean ?
You have two networks, both with the same address range. You have a
gateway that's told "only see upper /25 on that network, and lower /25 on
the other" ?
Wouldn't that mean that if you tryed to get from one to the other, it'd
just try and connect to the local equivelant IP ?
The words of the unwary are apt to cause needless pain and bloody violence.
