Routing isssues on a WAN

I have a vpn device at my main location with an ip of A.B.C.G, it is on the A.B.C.F network . I need to route traffic requesting/seeking two specific static external ips from the A.B.D.F network to the vpn, but allow all other traffic from the A.B.D.F network to be routed normally. The normal flow of internet traffic from the A.B.D.F network is: from computer to A.B.D.C, over line to A.B.K.C, into the A.B.C.F network, it's then routed to A.B.C.C my main firewall, and then out.  From here I have a static route in place that should reroute the specific traffic to the vpn device.  Is there an easier way to do this?  I took care of this on individual pc's on the A.B.C.F network, by creating persistent routes.  There are not many pc's on the A.B.D.F network that need to be rerouted.  Is it possible to setup persistent routes to a device that is not on the same network as the pc?  Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

yes, but it requires a few extra routes...BTW A.B.C.G, A.B.C.F, etc... is very confusing.  If you don't want to use your actual IPs please at least use real IPs to describe the issue.

If the static IPs needing routing over the VPN are and  Your main firewall is, your VPN device is and the remote network is

At the gateway from the 2.0 network to the 1.1 network create the static route of (cisco, but should still make sense)

ip route
ip route

Create the same static routes on your default gateway on the network to take care of "on network" clients accessing these IP addresses.

I do not suggest creating static routes in the OS as this is cumbersome and only there if you do not have routers or switches with routing capabilites on your network.

mcsween,  Thank you for your help.  I ended up creating static routes in my firewall.
