Static Route over VPN

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a box to box vpn setup between two offices.

In office T, the network is In office A, the network is 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 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 network, we can access the comcast box by typing It works. From the T network, it doesn't.

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

How should I be setting up this static route?
