Accessing a Server on a different subnet

I have a t1 line that goes into a switch, off the switch there are two routers one operating on the subnet 192.168.1.1 and the other on 192.168.0.1. Both routers have individual static ip addresses. I have a ReadyNAS storage device on 192.168.1.100. I want to be able to access the server from both subnets. The server has two ethernet ports but the second router is in another building and I don't want to have to run a second line to it. Any suggestions?

    Hello Admccurdy, If the link between two buildings is UTP you can "split" one UTP cable in two. This way you may have two different physical links in the same cable. A cleaner option would be: You didn't mention the vendor/brand of your equipment. So, considering that they are all from a "managed" kind, the first thing that came to mind was VLANs/Trunk. Configuring two VLANs (1 for each subnet) and a trunk in the switchport that goes to the server, you can have both subnets in the switch port you configured the Trunk. On the Server side, you don'r even need to have two NIC's, you just need one NIC and configure it either with two IPs (one for each subnet - split link option) or configure two VLANs and IPs, considering the VLAN/Trunk approach. Please let us know if you need further assistance.
