i have an issue with some networking that i would like some assistance with if possible. i have tried a couple of option but cant get this to work.
--setup-- Device 1:
4 port cpe running linux no internet connection via its wan port 4 lan ports supplying dhcp address ssh listening locally on 17.16.x.x
laptop running arch linux eth0 172.16.x.x ip address (from the cpe) wan1 10.10.x.x ip address ( internet via a home router)
the laptop gets the internet via wan1 and is connected via eth0 to another linux box (device 2) which has no internet and has a dhcp server running supplying eth0 with its 172.16.x.x address.
i am connected via eth0 and ssh to the cpe box and want to provide it with internet via the laptop so i can pull down some files and run some tools. my thought was to forward traffic possible via a route from wan1 to eth0 however every variation i try does not work.
i want to check if this is possible and get some advice on how to do it. any feedback would be great
