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

I added:

route outside Internet_Router 1

Which worked, but I also removed this and added:

route outside 1

Now 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 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.
