I configured WD MyBookWorld and join to the domain. Now it can be accessed in Local network. ex: 192.168.1.x

When I try to connect from another network(ex: 192.168.2.x). It cannot connect. But it can ping from another network. also, I can access the web from another network.


192.168.1.x, and 192.168.2.x are not necessarily on the same network, as you presume. If your 192.168.1.x network has a netmask of Only clients (hosts) from through will be able to communicate with each other.

Instead, without complicating the matter. I might suggest that the easiest way to achieve your goal. Would be to change the netmask on your network to ( /22 in CIDR notation ). In doing so. The following range of addresses will be able to communicate with each other: through Which will allow both of the networks you are attempting to communicate with, to reach each other. It will also allow for additional hosts in a broader range.

  • so what about if i have another network 192.168.125.x, 192.168.110.x ? – Liam neesan Jun 22 at 8:41
  • You need to add that range to the networks you described above? – somebody Jun 22 at 8:50
  • yes. I have 7 kind of ranges. – Liam neesan Jun 22 at 9:07
  • Then you'll want to use a netmask of a /17 in CIDR notaion. This will give you 0 - 127 on the third octet. It's the closest "classfull" range to what you want to achieve. – somebody Jun 22 at 9:12
  • no still not working. if I change it to I can ping. But, still, I cannot access. I I change it to, I cannot ping also. Also I restart wd mybookworld each time when I change netmask – Liam neesan Jun 22 at 10:01
