I trying to install a static route to my head office from spoke router using the name of the interface as the next hop router but this is not working because of arp resolution issues.
When i tried to use the ip address of the wan interface (10.30.XX.24) as the next hop the following error message is displayed
next hop ip address matches with the router's interface ip address
I want the traffic between my spoke and hub ( central office) to remain encrypted, hence I did not use the next hop address as the ip Address of the central router (10.30.xx.11)
I know if i do so the packets from spoke thru the default route will not be encrypted.
HOW CAN I USE MY SPOKE ROUTER WAN IP ADDRESS AS THE NEXT HOP INSTEAD OF THE NAME OF THE INTERFACE SO AS TO PREVENT THE ARP ISSUES
the default route below Is what i would like to achieve.
I ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.30.XX.24 permanent
