    I have two RV042 devices: head office (HO) and remote office (RO).
    I configure VPN tunnel and it works without any problem.

    The configuration is:
    LAN Head Office <-> ISA Server 2004 <-> RV042 HO <-> Internet <-> RV042 RO <-> LAN Remote Office

    The IP configuration:
    LAN Head Office -
    LAN Interface on ISA -
    WAN Interface on ISA -
    RV042 HO LAN Interface -
    RV042 HO WAN Interface - static IP from provider
    RV042 RO WAN Interface - static IP from provider
    RV042 RO LAN Interface -
    LAN Remote Office -

    VPN Tunnel is established. I see the network from Remote Office but I don't see network.

    Question is: how to add static route to subnet through VPN Tunnel on the RV042 in Remote Office?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Until multi subnet over a single VPN is added (not an IPSEC standard) to the RVs, you don't. You either have to specify a subnet range that includes both subnets or you create a second tunnel (the traditional method) that includes the 2nd subnet. Multiple tunnels to the same destination is fine as long as the subnet specs aren't identical between the two tunnels.

    I don't know if you'll have trouble adding the 2nd tunnel, depends on the firmware. On an earlier version the GUI would prevent it since there appeared to be a conflict with one of the subnets. Not really a conflict as per IPSEC but the GUI thought so. I think the latest versions allow you to add the 2nd tunnel. You might also have to play with the keys, I forget if the keys need to be different or the same on the RV to achieve this.
