They won't be discovered.

They can't communicate via TCP/IP in the network 192.168.255.0/24. They
may be able to communicate just fine on different networks or using
different protocols.

That question doesn't make any sense. The "route" command sets or
displays routes, i.e. next-hop destinations for packets. It doesn't
"connect" anything.

This will probably sound blunt, but you definitely need to work on your
network basics, particularly TCP/IP and Ethernet. This mailing list is
not the right place for filling the gaps you obviously have.
