Routing failed to locate next hop

pdesjardins1 used Ask the Experts™

Hello, I need a little help on this one. I have something wrong with my routing/tunnels. The tunnel between 10.13 and .77 is established. .77 can talk to 10.13....but only if .77 starts the communication.

Example. can ping    BUT cannot ping 77.1.

I get the error below in the log viewer.
Routing failed to locate next hop for ICMP from inside: to inside:

What do I have wrong?
(please note that only tunnel is active. All others are pending.)

What peer is the subnet connected to?  Looks like everything is going through a 209.x.x.x next-hop from the route statements, but I wonder if your ACL matches up with a crypto map statement.  I see:

access-list aclToVF extended permit ip

But I don't see a crypto map statement matching that ACL name.



Sorry, rookie mistake. That running config was an old one.

For crypto map statement i have:
crypto map crmVpnToSite 1 match address aclToVF
crypto map crmVpnToSite 1 set peer 96.x.x.x
crypto map crmVpnToSite 1 set transform-set X
You dont have to define route for the remote network will come automatically in routing table of the firewall when the tunnel will be up...

The crypto map that mentioned in your comment is not present in the config file attached....


Sorry for the confusion. Here is a new running config.

In trying to fix a hairpinning issues I had entered the line:
static (inside,inside) netmask

Removing that line fixed my 'failed to find next hop' issue.
