Cisco 2600

I have several members that connect to a central server at my office.  My current issue is that some of my members connect through point to point ISDN lines.  I have a Cisco 2600 (IOS 12.1) to handle that.  All of my members connect fine to my main server address 192.168.1.10, but I need to make another server avaliable on 192.168.1.82.  I have no access lists on my 2600 or any of the routers at my members sites, but I do have ip routes to open my whole subnet.  I can ping 192.168.1.10 successfully from my off-site routers, but I cannot ping 192.168.1.82.  On the 2600 in house, I can ping both addresses.  I don't know why the second address is not avaliable and any help would be greatly apprecited.  Thanks.

What are the routers at the endpoints?

Could you post relevant parts of the 2600 config as well as one of the spokes?

What do the routing tables look like on the spoke and hub routers?

Sorry, the router at the endpoint is a cisco 1600.

well, looks like you've got routing loop issues.

like this:
top router(hub) says:
ip route 170.88.109.0 255.255.255.0 172.31.4.2
ip route 170.88.224.0 255.255.255.0 172.31.4.2
ip route 170.88.225.0 255.255.255.0 172.31.4.2

bottom router (spoke) says:
ip route 170.88.109.0 255.255.255.0 172.31.4.1
ip route 170.88.224.0 255.255.255.0 172.31.4.1
ip route 170.88.225.0 255.255.255.0 172.31.4.1

These are opposite ends of a /30 network. So, hub says that to get to these networks, go to spoke. When it gets to spoke, it sees routes to those networks via the hub.

This is why I like dynamic routing protocols :)

Why do the spoke routers need anything other than a default route via Dialer0?

If you've got a hub/spoke switched network config, you might wanna go with ospf or eigrp as a dynamic routing protocol. It might make your life easier.

First, let me say that I am fairly new at this, and second I did not design and configure this setup.  I am not that familiar with dynamic routing, but I believe I need the loop because we have a pix 525 infront of our server, and it is a mix of ACLs and outside routes, when the network request from the spoke routers come in to the hub and then go to the pix to the server, it has to have a way to return the original address back to the spoke.  In our system the network printers have to have a static ip address associated with there prfile it can run on my server.  The printers ip address has to be loacl to the members network.
  The hubs routes:
ip route 170.88.109.0 255.255.255.0 172.31.4.2 point back to spokes local ip interface, and the spokes ip route destination is the default gateway for our members networks.  Everything works fine except I can't hit any other ip's on my extranet (192.168.1.x).  I don't know why that is.  192.168.1.10 works great, but that is it.  The spoke routers are sending all of the 192.168.1.x request back to my hub, but then it dies.  However the hub can ping the address that I am trying to reach.  Thanks for your help.

A request for refund has been made.  Experts you have 72 hours to object to a refund and state why.  I will return at that point to finalize.

FloppyDongle,
If you have figured this one out, please indicate your answer in a comment here so it can add value to our database.

Thanks all.

FloppyDongle,
If you can comment as to what the issue really was and how you fixed it, we can at least add this problem/solution to the database, and still refund your points.

The issue was that we are not using any addresss translation, and I needed to put IP routes in the device I was trying to add so that it could route the address back to the proper gateway.  Thanks for your help.

Good enough for a refund?  I have to defer to your great expertise in this area.

Perhaps reduce value (perhaps to 100 points) and give pedrow some credit for pointing the direction?

Lets give Pedro 150.  I think that sounds fair.  Thanks

as a final note, with a multi-router environment like this you might wanna investigate moving to the use of a dynamic routing protocol like eigrp or ospf.
