I have a box to box vpn setup between two offices.

In office T, the network is 192.168.240.1. In office A, the network is 192.168.250.1. The box to box VPN and static route from A to T works great. I can ping any machine on either network.

THere is a wrinkle here though... Box A's gateway is 192.168.250.1. THey have a Comcast Cable service. So, the WAN interface of the firewall that is doing the box to box VPN (m0n0wall) is plugged into a comcast gateway. From the 192.160.250.0/24 network, we can access the comcast box by typing 10.1.10.1. It works. From the T network, it doesn't.

I tried setting up a static route from 192.168.240.0/24 -> Gateway(192.168.250.1) -> 10.1.10.0/24, but the local gateway (T) just tells me that 10.1.10.1 is not reachable (message originates from 192.168.240.1, the gateway in office T).

How should I be setting up this static route?
