default routing and static routing


we routing problem between 2 location.

Pls. refer to the attachment diagram ROUTING

C4 is the main server.

C1, C2 and C3 desktop  must access the C4 server vice-versa

Problem we cannot C1, C2 and C3 cannot ping C4

local cisco engineer configure R5 router static route, and R6, R9 & R10 default route or any/any

C4 must be access any location...

local cisco eng'r. ask us to add routes in our firewall

add routes R6, R9 and R10

we told them its not firewall related... base on the diagram its behind or inside firewall (pls. refer to attachment WAN)

They use Cisco 1941 (R5) and Cisco 1921 (R6, R9, R10)

as per our gns3 simulation is ok...

Hope you can help us....


Re: default routing and static routing


Some Windows OS won't accept to reply to pings from a different subnet due to their software firewall setting.

Could you try disabling software firewall of the server if it is a Windows one.

I think I replied too fast, should have taken a look at the pictures first 

The subnet on BO( is overlapping with the one in Main office( so you would have to do dual NAT to get it working.

Re: default routing and static routing


Thank you for the replay well noted

The subnet in BO is

in our prepared setup BO will connect to MO to have internet/email  access..

cisco local eng'r cannot do basic routing....

regarding dual NAT can you explain to me...

Thank you and best regards,



default routing and static routing


Sorry I totally answered stupid. and are indeed in 2 different subnets.

I still wondering where my brain was when I replied such insanity.

So let's focus on the problem again, this time with a new brain in my head hopefully.

So my first idea of the windows software firewall denying the ping from a different subnet might well be the cause of the problem.

on the BO router can you ping the server sourcing from the LAN interface with following debug:

debug ip pack 100 det

access-list 100 permit icmp any any

Post output here.

Re: default routing and static routing

If you want to eliminate network routing start from the other direction. Ping from the server (or the hq switch if possible) down to that Mfp device at the branch. If that works you Need to concentrate on the server configs as Alain has suggested. If not, you may have a networking problem.
