Routing in Suse

Hi Folks - new to the whole LINUX thing so please be gentle!!

I have two SLES 10.3 boxes and I need to be able to see a device hanging off one box from the other box.
I have enabled IP Forwarding on the box (Box A) with the device attached and on the other box(Box B) I have created a static route to subnet of the device.

I can’t ping the device from Box B although I can ping the interface on Box A which the device is connected to. Pinging the device from Box A is fine

Can someone please tell me what I am missing?


These are the openSUSE forums, not SLE based products, you need to head over to and post in the SLES subforums. The same username/password will work over there.
