Unanswered Question

Hello all,

I have 2 WAN Connections.

1=Broadband connection with static IP (

2=T-1 connection with static IP (

I want all traffic to default to the Broadband connection ( but I need a few IPs to route over to the T-1. The IPs I need to route to the T-1 are...

How & where to I enter this information? I only have the GUI interface to work with.

In the PDM I have the following setup and it is not working...

Under the Configuration - Host/Networks tab I've added an Outside Interface named Blah with the following specs.

Basic Info

IP =

Mask =

Int = outside

Name = Blah


Checked Define Static Route

Gateway IP =

Metric = 2

I have the same setup for the other 2 IPs as well(with different names). I've applied the command and saved the router config and it still doesn't route.

FYI, I changed the Interface to also be Inside just in case and it did not change any of the final results.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!!!!!
