Static routes for RAS clients
Posted on 2003-11-04
I admin a network set up in two segments: 192.168.5.x containing windows servers and clients and 192.168.6.x containing unix servers. This works fine for everyone in the office since the default gateway is the main router. However remote clients have the "Use default gateway on remote network" unchecked in the VPN TCP/IP properties to maintain internet access. This means that whilst the RAS server gives out a route for the 192.168.5.x destination (router set as the ip of the client) there is no route to 192.168.6.x.
I've tried to fix this by adding a 033 static route option to the DHCP server providing the lease to the VPN client to map dest. 192.168.6.0 to router 192.168.5.1 which works when added to a client manually. However the DHCP server doesn't seem to push this option out - or if it does the client won't pick it up (or the RAS server doesn't pass this option along).
If you know of a way to solve this by whatever means, that would be great.
