how to add static route after connecting to Cisco VPN
Posted on 2008-10-14
We have 2 networks in our office 192.168.1.x and 192.168.116..x. There's a windows XP box (SP3) in 192.168.1.x and has default gateway (192.168.1.1) set for connecting internet and other network 192.168.116.x.
When this box connects to remote Cisco VPN, its Default gateway gets changed and 192.168.116.x is not accessible (we don't need Internet here but must be able to connect the other network while being connected to VPN as well). So, i added a static route (after connecting to VPN) as below but no use.
route add 192.168.116.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 metric 1
when i tried tracert it does not display any gateway/hop except for *.
