Need help routing internet traffic to other network

One of my network locations is losing their direct internet connection and I need to keep them up by routing all of their internet traffic to a second location that has internet connectivity.  The two networks are connected via T1 lines.

I need to change the line that states:
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.2.6

10.1.2.6 is the firewall on the local end.  The two cisco routers are connected via their own network: 10.1.10.5 (remote) and 10.1.10.6 (local)  The remote network is 10.1.1.0 and the local network is 10.1.2.0.

I tried to replace the line to read 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.1.6 (remote firewall) as well as using 10.1.1.1 (remote ip of cisco router) and even 10.1.10.5.... none of those entries worked, though.

What am I missing?

Larry,

It sounds like you now want all of your traffic to go through the WAN to the primary site so removing both routes:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.2.6
ip route 10.1.1.0 255.255.255.0 10.1.10.5

And replacing them with a single one:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.10.5

Should do the trick. You probably do not need RIP enabled on this router.

In that case you could use an ip default gateway command as well.

Thanks Kent,  but for some reason the packets just end at 10.1.10.5 when I do a tracert to the internet.

Larry,

Do you have a default route in the remote router to direct everything to the Inet?

Yes, the remote router is routing all 0.0.0.0 traffic to it's firewall, then out to the internet.

Larry,

Do you get responses from anything on teh 192.168.22.0 network or any other than the Inet?

larryAuthor Commented:
You mean from the local side?  The 192. network is on the remote side, but no, the local traffic still ends at 10.1.10.5 when I try to get to 192.  The remote network routes 192 traffic correctly.

EmpKentCommented:
OK, so is it safe top say that the only traffic getting back to 10.1.2.0 is that from 10.1.1.0?

Ensure that your local route is ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.10.5.

With this, I am leaning towards an issue in the remote router config, not the local.

larryAuthor Commented:
Yes, that is the local route but it ends at 10.1.10.5.  I think you're right about something going on at the remote router.  I'm not sure why the remote router isn't passing the packets from 10.1.10.5 to the remote firewall, 10.1.1.6?

Attached is the complete config for the remote router.

Larry,

Can you post the results of a sh ip route from the remote router?

Kent

EmpKentCommented:
Also, debug ip rip.

I think you need to turn RIP off.

Sure thing, here's the sh:
Gateway of last resort is 10.1.1.6 to network 0.0.0.0

S    192.168.42.0/24 [1/0] via 10.1.1.14
     10.0.0.0/8 is variably subnetted, 4 subnets, 3 masks
C       10.1.10.4/30 is directly connected, Multilink1
C       10.1.10.6/32 is directly connected, Multilink1
S       10.1.2.0/24 [1/0] via 10.1.10.6
C       10.1.1.0/24 is directly connected, FastEthernet0
S    192.168.22.0/24 [1/0] via 10.1.1.14
S*   0.0.0.0/0 [1/0] via 10.1.1.6

I'll remove RIP, too...

larryAuthor Commented:
The problem was two-fold.  The routes should have been going to the remote network not the remote router network.  Also, routes needed to be added to the firewall as that was why they were stopping at the remote router.

Being that I didn't receive any responses after my last post, I would like this question closed.

Sorry Larry, I was out of the country on business and then on vacation in Mexico and had no access so I could not get back to you.

I think you can just request the issue be closed and the point refunded.

Thanks,

Kent
