Static routing through IPSec tunnel
Posted on 2011-03-07
I need some help on setting up a static route through an IPSec tunnel to access a 3rd party server. The backgound is:
From our office network we are accessing a 3rd party server (212.xxx.xxx.173) that only allows access from specific IP-numbers, i.e. our external IP-number (82.xxx.xxx.64)
I also need to access the 3rd party when at home and before I used a PPTP connection to access our office network. Then I got an IP-number from the internal office network i.e. (192.168.111.15) and I could easily route my traffic with a ROUTE ADD 212.xxx.xxx.172 192.168.111.15.
Now the home and office network is connected with an IPSec tunnel which is much more practical, but then I do not know how to (if even possible) to route the connection to the 3rd party through my office network so that the request seems to be made from the authorized IP-number.
My guess would be that I need to set a static route in the home firewall but this has not suceeded.
1. If I was to set up a static route on the home firewall, how should that look?
2. Is it possible to set up a static route on my PC on the home network that would achieve the same?
3rd party IP: 212.xxx.xxx.173
Office public IP: 82.xxx.xxx.64
Office internal network: 192.168.111.0/24
Home public IP. 213.xxx.xxx.124
Home internal network: 192.168.0.0/24
Many thanks in advance!
