Static route help

Unanswered Question
Apr 10th, 2008

Hi,

I have a VPn on my Cisco ASA firewall. I used the VPN wizard to create it, but it didn't work until I added a static route to the ASA.

Remote network is 172.16.1.0/24

I added:

route outside 172.19.15.0 255.255.255.0 Internet_Router 1

Which worked, but I also removed this and added:

route outside 172.19.15.0 255.255.255.0 1.2.3.4 1

Now 1.2.3.4 is the peer address of the remote router, which one is best to use? point to our internet router to find the remote network or point that traffic straight to the remote router for the VPN?

route outside 172.19.15.0 255.255.255.0 Internet_Router 1

is the preferred one. As it is direct next hop to ASA.

In static routing you point your traffic to the next hop IP, or on the router it can be the outbound interface.
