Ping server at the HQ

Unanswered Question
Jan 19th, 2009

I have two branches connected to the HQ through tunnel. Basic configuration. I am using static routing. My problem is users at both branch can get to the server at HQ,but when I do a ping to the server from one branch router, it will reply,on the other,it wont reply. But extended ping on both replies. The issue is that the two branches has same config.

I have this problem too.

The issue is simple, you are relying on static routing and the HQ router may have reachability information for some subnets while other subnets are missing.

If you can ping from the router on extended ping but not on simple ping, then you need to identify the source IP address of the router and verify the routing table at the HQ router for that route.

Any reason why you aren't using dynamic routing protocol?
