intermittent routing

i have a person trying to connect over a wan to our network in the following way

remote pc ip:

remote router ethernet ip:

remote router serial :

local router serial: 90 250.69.1

local router ethernet ip:

internal vlan routing via cisco 2600 series router

router ip's:

vlan 1 managament vlan

vlan 5

vlan 6

he needs to connect to two servers. on vlan 5

and on vlan 6

connecting to is fine

connecting to will work for a while, stop working for a while, then

start working again, in a constantly repeating cycle.

how do i stop this cycle? i've tried resetting routes on all the routers and

putting static routes on the pc's but it still continues. the remote pc is

not on directly on a vlan, would this cause it?

the following are the routes that have been setup.

remote router:

ip route

ip route

ip route

local router

ip route

ip route

ip route

vlan router

ip route

thanks for any help

Re: intermittent routing

Your routing statement is troubling. Wwithout knowing the details, based on your info. I am having trouble understanding the two default route on your router. Do you have other VLANs? does this router is also your edge router which provide internet service? the router should point to the serial interface only, since this is a WAN connection.

You could also turn the routing protocol on like eigrp, then setup the vlan5 and vlan6 interface to be passive.

Re: intermittent routing

If I understand your physical connections correctly, I would setup your routes as follows: On the remote router "ip route". This will send all unknown traffic to the local router. On the local router "ip route" and "ip route". This will tell the local router the next hop to the and networks. On the VLAN router "ip route". This will tell the VLAN router the next hop to the remote ethernet. On the server "default gateway" and on the server "default gateway". This will give each router a default gateway. Good luck!

Re: intermittent routing

If you must have two default routes, give the one that is backup a higher metric.
