How to connect a smaller PVC to a 2in Rubber Drain?


I need a better way to connect the PVC pipe from the kitchen sink to the drain in the floor. Problem is that the PVC pipe is smaller than the rubber drain pipe in the ground. Can someone please give me some tips to remedy this? Thank you....Steph
I can email you the pic if needed. I can't get it to upload.

will it work in reverse for my set up? I have one pipe from the sink drains that goes into another pipe and then into the rubber drain.

There is a PVC nipple that you glue on the pipe at the end where it leaks, the other end is threaded and accepts the drain pipe with a compression ring and nut just like the one above the leak.
