So heres my question. Im running GNS3 with multiple routers, and a cloud to bring the internet in via the host pc. I attached a screen shot of my Topology in GNS3 to give a visual of the setup. I can ping out/telnet in via the internet to the first attached router (R4 in the topology), however none of my other routers can get out. Im running EIGRP on all routers except R7, and all routes are discovered ok. R4 has a route of last resort to the gateway (10.26.7.1). I can ping all of the networks, I just cant ping out to the internet. From any router except R4, I can ping up to 10.26.7.3, but not the gateway of 10.26.7.1. Im trying to figure out what Im missing here. Can anyone shed some light?
Yes, you need one or more route back on 10.26.7.1
If you add static routes, then the next hop has to be your R4, 10.26.7.3
You need to add static routes for all networks that you have in your GNS3 "cloud".
Or establish a dynamic routing protocol between R4 and your L3 switch and push the networks to L3 switch through that dynamic routing protocol.
Let me know if this works!
