Sorry my last post was a little misleading.

If you want to keep DHCP for your outside interface but not get the default-route from DHCP

1) replace "ip address outside dhcp setroute" with "ip address outside dhcp"

2) add the default route as previous post.

If you want to assign a new IP address to your outside interface then

1) remove the complete line "ip address outside dhcp setroute"

2) configure the outside interface with your new IP address

3) add the default-route as per previous post.

Again, apologies if i mislead you.

Devi

The pix will not be able to use 2 default-routes.

What does the routing table on the pix show at the moment

pix# sh route

what route are you trying to add and what are you trying to achieve.

we have dhcp set route on outside and on sh route we have default route for outside as static route pulling an address from dhcp server .

right now we are trying to give a static ip to cu and in order to do that am addin a default route pointing to interface bundle of router but as i already have one default route i am not able to add another one .

Sorry but it would really help if you could

1) Post the output of "sh route" from your pix

2) post the actual new route you are trying to add

Here, is the output of sh route

outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 12.x.x.x 1 DHCP static

inside 10.x.x.x 255.255.255.0 10.x.x.x 1 CONNECT static

outside 12.x.x.x 255.255.252.0 12.x.x.x 1 CONNECT static

here, is the one we want to add :

route outside 0 0 < new staic ip add>

Okay, you can't do that. Do you really need another default-route or is the new route just for some specific destinations ?

We are trying to assign a static route to cu, instead of getting an add from dhcp servers.

can you help me out,,how can we do that

Jon Marshall Wed, 11/05/2008 - 09:31

Not sure what "cu" means ?

Assuming you want to put your own default-route in and not use the one assigned by DHCP

1) remove the "ip address dhcp setroute" command from your configuration

2) Add the following

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0
