ppp and static router

Answered Question
Mar 19th, 2008

Hi friends,

I am with problems on the my connection ppp. I created static router, the communication between routers is established, I obtain connection to IP of the LAN port on the routers, the my problem is that I do not obtain connection the stations of the side of the LAN, only until the IP of the port LAN of routers. What it is necessary so that the communication continues until its final destination?

If you can reach the LAN of the remote router and the remote router can reach your LAN, then routing is functioning properly.

If the workstations at either LAN can't ping each other, then make sure the default gateway of the workstations are pointing to their respective LAN IP of the local router.

Edison and friends, exactly, I don't not understand which is problem.

See my scene.

Default gateway on the network is

RouterX (WAN IP

RouterX (LAN IP

RouterY (WAN IP

RouterY (LAN IP

The static router for routerX is

The static router for routerY is

My problem is that the hosts on the network do not obtain communication with hosts on the network through of the router

These switches will be only used for the communication point to point with other place.

In this other place does not exist other router, only the router, different of the other place that have the default gateway ( and the router for this communication.

The return on the communication is necessary? Is necessary a route on the router for the router As the router is the default gateway for all hosts on the network is necessary a static route in this router for the router

Sincerely, I don't understand the cause of the problem in this communication.

Analysing my scene which configurations is necessary ?

1) The default gateway on hosts located in should be - Router X LAN interface - NOT

2) The static route on Router X for should be - Router Y WAN interface - NOT

3) The static route on Router Y should use the gateway of - Router X WAN interface - NOT

Edison, sorry

I wrote wrong, your reply for questions 2 and 3 is correctly but for the question 1 you it did not understand. I have two routers on the network, the default router that use for communication with internet and others places (example: USA, England) and the other router ( which use for point to point communication. I want that the hosts of the network obtain communication with the network OK?

In that case, Router should have a route for network pointing to

brunosantosnet Fri, 03/21/2008 - 12:54

...exactly, this for communications of the hosts on the network for the hosts on the network, but for communication of the hosts on the network for the hosts on the network, remember that in this network does not exist other router, only the router and this obtain connection normally the LAN port of the router, but not the hosts of the network

Friend, thanks

Don't you have a default route on the router hosting pointing back to the router hosting

Well, that should take care of all routes.

brunosantosnet Fri, 03/21/2008 - 13:22

Sorry, I did not understand. The ping command of the host on the network it functions without problems until the LAN port of router (, but not in hosts of the same network of router.

It won't work until you add the route to the 53.0/24 network in the 52.254 router.

This route should point to 52.10

In the 52.254 router do:

ip route

Very good friend. But this resolve the communication of the hosts on the network for the hosts on the network, that is my main problem. With its explanation I understand that a bidirectional communication for a successful communication between the network is necessary. Correctly?
