Thanks Christine.

Multi homing the router is an option we are considering and I'm waiting
for it to be assessed but unfortunately is not that obvious for us to
get it.

server0 is the global zone, indeed, and I thought I could use somehow
its packet-forwarding and routing services from the 192.168.0.0/19 zone:
but, as you explained, it's not a viable option.

Thanks for the info,
Enrico.
