We have a cisco 2610 router at a remote location that we are trying to back up to our ftp server. We do not seem to be able to get the router to ping the ftp server. The wierd thing is, we can ping from a server on the far side of the router without any problems. When we try a traceroute it shows the router hitting the local router and then times out, even though the ftp server is directly connected to the eth-0 side of the local router. Basic setup is like this -
192.168.85.2 (eth0 on remote) -> 192.168.6.26 (s0 on remote) <----------> 192.168.6.25 (s0 on local) <-> 192.168.73.96 (eth0 on local)
we also have a 192.168.173.xxx network on the local side. The show ip route shows the 173.xxx route to be directly connected via eth0.
the default gateway address on remote is 192.168.6.25
the default gateway address on local is 192.168.173.3 (a watchguard that also routes to the internet)
from the remote router we can ping 192.168.173.1 (a server) but not any of the remaining 173.xxx addresses.
The problem is that the ftp server is 192.168.173.180 and we can't seem to get there.
No one here is really familiar with routers, so any assistance would be appreciated.
