MPLS Hand off to ASA 5510

Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I have a new MPLS line between 2 sites which currently use site to site VPN over internet.

My telco has provided routers @ each site preprogrammed for MPLS, handing off to me in the form of an IP on my /24 subnet.

I have having issues routing traffic from site A to site B via the MPLS.

ASA 5510 =

ASA 5510 =

If I connect my laptop directly to MPLS router with IP set as site A's ASA (.254) and my default gateway as the MPLS router (.252) I am able to ping the MPLS router @ site B, so I know the connection works in general.

The issue occurs when I attempted to route with the ASA. I have added a static route @ site A to my inside interface IP Subnet Gateway (in ASDM), this does not allow me to ping the MPLS router @ site B.

However from my laptop behind the inside interface @site A I add this static route to windows, & I can ping the MPS router @ site B. route ADD MASK

I am sure that I am doing the routing wrong on the ASA, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

(Oh on a side note, I have a outside interface at both sites that goes to public internet)
