MPLS Config on RV042

Hello all,

I am having 2 offices. 1 is my headoffice & other is my Branch Office.

I am having MPLS Connectivity at both ends & Internet Connectivity at Head office.

I am Having Cisco RV042 Routers at both ends. At my Head Office I terminated MPLS & Internet Link on RV042 & then i am having CISCO ASA 5510 Firewall.

I want to connect my 2 offices using MPLS & want my Branch office should get internet connetivity from my Headoffice Only Through MPLS.

& As i am having ASA 5510 a @ my Head office I want my Branch office traffic should follow the rules appliedin ASA Which is @ my Head office.

Head office LAN :

Branch Office LAN : /24

Please Help me....

Hi Vinayak,

I suggest you do an online chat with a tech support engineer located here or you can call tech support and the phone numbers in your area are located here.

Re: MPLS Config on RV042

indy suggests you chat online with a engineer, which is a good idea.

Since you have both RV042 communicating on a MPLS network. and there is no need for the routers to anything but route then I am wondering if the RV042 are in gateway mode (the default)  or router mode ?

Router mode will disable the NAT and firewall (i believe) and just allow IP routing between the two networks. I think this is the better mode for just routing between networks.  Allow the ASA to perform the NATting and firewall.

A default route at the far end router  and a static route pointing to the remote router .  I have no idea of the gateway adresses or RV042 WAN addresses, so my screen capture below of the HQ router looks a but exaggerated.  The HQ router also needs a default route that point to the ASA5505 as the next hop. But your question lacks a topology diagram that better explains your setup.

I have shown a screen capture using old software on the RV042 that shows the section you may have to adjust.

At least it's something to think about and try,  before you chat with a technician

Please tell me is MPLS Conne


Re: MPLS Config on RV042

I agree with Dave,

I would go in router mode which takes out all the routing table, then do static routes for the lan and setup a default route to the default gateway which should be on the mpls network.  You might have to do a default route from there to continue the path to allow internet connectivity through the other end of the mpls circuit.
