Hello I have a Windows 7 between the router and the firewall.

I need that "computer A" access to the SharePoint behind the TMG using the url: "https://sharepoint.client.com".

This URL has a published rule in the TMG.
I have uploaded a diagram.

can you ping 192.168.2.2 ?
If so, route is not the problem but access.

Check the ping 1st and let me know

I don't see any network on your diagram with 192.169.1.x network

By, "I cannot ping...." do you mean unsuccessful pings?

What model is your router and firewall?

Input the following route on the router if it is a Cisco router
ip route 192.168.2.0 0.0.0.255 192.168.1.2

Paste the result of the following command from the firewall
route print

The following route may not be necessary if the firewall already has a default route exiting through 192.168.1.1

Input the following route on the firewall
route ADD 192.168.1.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1METRIC 3 IF 2

The router is a basic ADSL provided for the ISP.

In the router I  have add destination 192.168.2.0 gateway 192.168.1.2.

But I need In computer A the name resolution "https://sharepoint.client.com". was directly to 192.168.2.2 without asking DNS servers.

So my problem is route and name resolution, I think the route is done add the static route in the router ADSL.

Thanks and sorry to be late.

You will need to modify the lmhost file of the computers to bypass DNS queries for that host name. This requires administrator privilege.

Navigate to the file as shown below
C:\Windows\System32\ drivers\etc\lmhosts.sam

OR
%systemroot%\Windows\System32\drivers\etc (if using group policy especially if the system root is not on the C drive)

Open the file in notepad
Add the line
192.168.2.2 sharepoint
