connecting 2 peer to peer networks

connecting 2 peer to peer networks

This seems so simple but just can't get it to work. I want to connect peer2peer n/work to n/work Using XP Pro on all PCs, the gateway pc has 2 network cards, one is and the other is  I would expect to be able to have a pc on the 192.168 network and get to a pc on the 172.18 network but doesn't work. I am testing using ping.  Is this considered routing? If i run ipconfig the resultant shows ip routing enabled = no. How do I get this on? Is this required to be on? This is driving me nuts, such a simple network. All advice appreciated.

RE: connecting 2 peer to peer networks

It is considered routing.  Try obtaining Microsoft's ISA Server software to perform the routing functions
