I'm not sure I understand the question correctly, but I'll give it a shot ...

You want to test a route using a certain router/firewall?

The tracert command has the option "-j" which you could try for this ... Like I said, not entirely sure what it is exactly you're trying to accomplish.

Example:  tracert -j <fw-ip> destination

Or tracert -d (any internet IP) to see if which route it takes to get to the internet.

Sorry my question is more from the router side. I have mulitple subnets, and I would like to route a specific hosts of a subnet to a remote firewall. I'm running ospf in a vrf environment, all host can ping each other. So for example

2 firewalls and

right now all go out but what to test a host to send out I know for static route's I need the destination netmask nethop, but I have over 300 destinations I would have to add.

Is there an easier way to have this done on a router?
