I know this is a strange setup, but we have a subsidiary company
in our computer room now (which is temporary), and instead of
totally re-doing their ip scheme I decided to see if I could
route packets between our machines for a short while.
Some answers suggested routers and metric hops and such, but I really
didn't want to purchase hardware if I could help it.
The answer came from :

Who hit the problem right on the head and all is working fine now.
The key was replacing the metric hop with the word gateway.
Thanks a million Jim!
--------- Jim's solution --------------
Quick and dirty: You will have to make each of the 2 hosts a route
gateway to the other. On the host with the IP address 220.127.116.11 add
the following route:
route add 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 gateway
After this run the netstat command again on machine to see the new routes.
On the host with the IP address 126.96.36.199 add the following route:
route add 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 gateway
