Anyone know of a way to add a static route for a remote subnet to a 3COM NBX 100?

I want network to be routed via an IP (on the NBX local subnet) other than the default gateway.


NBX - IP is
Default Gateway:

Want to route:  Destination from NBX to router at

Thx in advance for suggestions....

Sorry, no way to add a route to the NBX  you'll have to add the route to your router.

Using your example:

On your router, add a route

ip route static metric x (usually 1)

NBX - IP is
Default Gateway:

Want to route:  Destination from NBX to router at

This will cause the NBX to route from NBX -> -> -> 192.168.2.x Dest.

I have a similar setup with two NBX systems over a PtP T1 line, both NBX's are pointed to the routers on thier subnet, and those routers have routes to each other.

I was afraid of that.  

No big deal, I was just hoping that the NBX had internal route tables so that I could use something other than the default gateway/router to handle traffic for/link to a remote subnet.  In any case thanks for the input.  I will be adding a firewall on the remote side with VPN capabilities in order to do what I really need, and then the need no longer exists for the static route that I had hoped for.

Thanks again for your reply!
