You should be able to ping 10.100.100.22 though, right?
As for the rest of the 10.100.100.x machines, is Box1 their default
gateway? If not, they all need either a route for Box2 192.168.3.2/32
via box1, or else their default to go via box1.
ip route add 192.168.3.0/30 via 10.100.100.22
Also, make sure box1 has ip_forward enabled:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/forwarding
or if your distro has /etc/sysctl.conf:
echo 'net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding = 1' >> /etc/sysctl.conf
> But it doesn't...
Cause machines on the 10.100.100.x network probably either have no
idea which direction 192.168.3.2 is, or their default route goes
somewhere else, or box1 is not doing forwarding.
