Routing to another device on another network joined by private VPN

Hi all,

We have a IP KVM that is at another site which we want to use for troubleshooting should we need to remotely get into the bios of a server.

The two sites are joined by a cisco 1800 series VPN supplied by a telco vendor.  We can get to the server on the remote side as we have added a persisent route (i.e route -p with specifics) onto the server.

The ip kvm we arent so lucky.  How do i go about being able to contact this IP KVM from the remote site through this router?  Once of the cisco's is the main gateway where the IP KVM is and on the other side its just a router for VPN purposes.

Thanks in advance.

Usually, you would need to add the subnet of the KVM to the ACL you use for the VPN's address match so that the KVM subnet is swept into the VPN tunnel?

I can't picture your setup from your description.  Can you clarify - or better yet, post a simple diagram?

This is what I got:

Site_1 computer -> switch -> Telco_Router  -> VPN / Internet  -> Telco_Router  ->

Switch -> Server
           -> Workstations
           -> KVM

Is that accurate?

Yes correct, not that it matters but the telco routers don't supply Internet, simply a VPN between sites. Site 1 uses a different gateway hence why I have had to put in routes to the remote site pointing through the telco routers.

See Diagram.
If this is correct, then this is what needs to happen.
Assuming that:
site-1 = 10.1.1.0 /24
site-2 = 10.2.2.0 /24
R-1 = 10.1.1.1
R-2 = 10.2.2.1
Telco-router/ site-1 = 10.1.1.200
Telco-router/ site-2 = 10.2.2.200
KVM device has an address within the 10.2.2.0/24 subnet


The workstation at site 1 has a default gateway of 10.1.1.1
Server has default gateway of 10.2.2.1
R-1 needs a static route: dest=10.2.2.0/24  next hop=10.1.1.200
R-2 needs a static route: dest=10.1.1.0/24  next hop=10.2.2.200

The internet routers have a lot to do with the connection because they are the default gateways and packets must go there first if they are headed for an Ip address outside the current subnet.

If my diagram is inaccurate, then we will need to tweak my answer.
It will also depend on what kind of VPN you have (ip translation?)
Let us know.

Almost right except for no r2 at site two due to the internet being routed through internet access router site 1 with a static route of 192.168.20.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.30.251 in that router.  Which is i guess the next hop route you mentioned as the telco router is 30.251.

site 1 is 192.168.30.x with 2 internet gateways - 30.254 is the server gateway which in this case is the r1 in the diagram.   The other gateway 30.253 is used by the client PC's only.

The telco VPN setup is a special service provider providing just a link and no internet due to the contraints of the site where the branch is located.  normally that r2 would also provide internet access for us.

Solution - my IP KVM device had two spots for the default gateway of which one wasnt populated.  Once putting in correct gateway i could ping the device and access it from the other site.
