Cisco Getting TTL expired in transit. Traffic bouncing from one router to another back and forth

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Setting up a new network while trying to keep the old one going in unison. This is a little difficult to describe...
Traffic from server should go out router to router then to router and on to server

Doing a "tracert" from a server on the 172.16.101.x subnet which is in another state (Ohio) and below are the results I get...

Tracing route to aldsvrapp1.aldik.com []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1     1 ms     1 ms     1 ms  out of state router.com []
  2    59 ms    59 ms    59 ms <My router
  3    60 ms    60 ms    60 ms < router
  4   118 ms   118 ms   119 ms
  5   119 ms   119 ms   119 ms
  6   177 ms   177 ms   177 ms

The tracert about it just bounces between router and or and
Here is the config of or

I'm guessing I need some sort of IP route to get it to hop over to

I hoping I explained the network layout well enough to troubleshoot
