Static Route?

Hi everybody. Thanks for any replies ahead of time.

I am in charge of a volunteer mobile field communications unit for a municipality. Our mission is to assist police/fire/EMS with communications at the scene of large incidents.

The truck has 2 internet connections through cellular providers. The first connection (router 192.168.70.1) is a VPN back to the town's municipal LAN. The second connection (router 192.168.70.2) connects directly to the internet.

All of the computers and devices in the truck have 192.168.70.* IP addresses. They are all set for 192.168.70.2 as their gateway.

The problem is that with this configuration, private websites on the town's LAN are unreachable from the computer in the truck. I need to somehow set the network so that 192.168.. and 10...* addresses point to 192.168.70.1 as their gateway instead. I believe that I may need to enter a static route into the 192.168.70.2 router, but I'm still too new to networking to know what that would exactly be or if that's the true path to resolution.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Your problem is probably that you are operating in a different Subnet (IP address range) from the town's LAN. The Subnet Mask address of 255.255.255.0 will prevent addresses with a different third "octet" from communicating, i.e. 192.168.70.x addresses won't communicate with 192.168.10.x addresses. Can you not operate your devices in the truck with 192.168.10.x addresses, using firewall software to block unwanted access?
