  • PIX Static route question

    Hi all

    We have setup a Windows Server (2003) as a router (http://forums.petri.com/showthread.php?t=10334).

    This is working but for the 192.168.10.x subnet it needs the hosts on the 192.168.x.0 subnet to have a static route added as:

    route add 192.168.10.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.222 (route ip)

    The default gateway on the 192.168.0.x subnet has our cisco pix as a default gateway (192.168.0.1). Instead of having a static route on every machine to allow the 192.168.10.x subnet to be contacted could we not add a static route on our pic that says anything for 192.168.10.x route via 192.168.0.222?

    Thanks

    Re: PIX Static route question

    We have added a route onto the pix and now i can ping the PIX from the new subnet. But it seems to been like a route on a workstation. It only works when it is pinged.

    It does not act as a 'relay' for the other workstations on the original subnet (the same subnet as the PIX).

    Any ideas?

      HI Tony
      Thanks for the post.
      I read your email twice but am still a little fuzzy the network.
      However, it sounds like you are having an issue where you have two routers (the windows system and the Cisco PIX). Each is doing routing. With two routers, each router will have to know what networks the other router has so that all devices on every network can talk to all devices on other networks.

      Typically, this can be done two ways
      1. routing protocol - use a routing protocol like RIP or OSPF on both the windows server and the Cisco PIX. These devices would exchange routes and automatically know what the other networks are that are attached to the other devices. No static routes are needed.
      2. static routes - configure static routes on the PIX for all the Windows networks and static routes on the Window server for all the PIX networks.

      Let me know if this helps or not.

      Thanks,
      David
