RV042 VPN and Routing Table

    Does anyone know how/if the RV042 routing table can affect VPN traffic?

    It seems there could be at least two answers:

    No, because the VPN tunnel implementation bypasses the routing table.

    Yes, because the VPN tunnel implementation feeds the routing table on output.

    Example:

    VPN
    from #1 192.168.113.128 / 255.255.255.224 with LAN address .157
    to #2 192.168.113.192 / 255.255.255.192 with LAN address .253
    (note these are nonoverlapping subnets)

    Then on #2 add a route:
    Destination 192.168.1.4 Gateway 192.168.113.198

    This doesn't seem to work and I suspect it's because 192.168.1.4 isn't in the 192.168.113.128 subnet at VPN #1.

    I'm posting a related question separately.

    Thanks,

    Fred

    What's at that address :confused:

    A router is at that address that has a route to the destination.

    So the PC is at VPN #1 and you're trying to access something on a network which you've added to the routing table on the router at the VPN #2 end?

    A LAN is at VPN #1 with *a number of clients/hosts*, but yes I'm dealing with just one of them for testing right now.

    Correct about the route / router at #2.

    In which case the packets sent from the PC to the device at 192.168.1.4 will not be going down the tunnel as it is outside of the range defined for the remote end i.e. 192.168.113.192 / 255.255.255.192.
