Route - non default gateway issue and how to broadcast it

For tedious reasons I've had to implement a VPN "side by side". At least I think that's how it is termed.

I have a firewall with private IP - (this is also the default gateway)

I have another router providing a site to site VPN - this router is at and the remote subnet is

If I ping from a machine, say ->, it only works if I add a static route :- route add mask

However, there is a machine - that I need to be able to ping which isn't a PC and I haven't got immediate access to. It's on a static IP.

Is it somehow possible to "broadcast" to the whole network that the gateway it needs for is at ?

The router at (and at the other end of the VPN) is a Draytek Vigor 2820

The default gateway of is a computer running Forefront TMG as part of Windows EBS

Add the static routes for each subnet to the draytek routers not the local machines. They will then get the routes from their default gateways.

this is not configured with a D\G?
plug1 is right on adding the static route on the router, not on each client but in order for this to work on a static IP machine (whatever it is) you MUST ensure it is pointing at the router as D\G
if it has the wrong D\G it will still be accessible in the LAN but not to other subnets
