We are trying to create a VPN with a Pix to our remote office.  It is connected to another pix.  The internal Pix has it's own internet connection so it is not going through ISA.  It has an IP of and works if I set my default gateway to 71.  To get around this I added a route statement to the ISA server like so:  route add mask

This still does not work.  I checked the logs and it shows a connection being initated but it does not work.  Do I need to create a new network with the other office ip range?  Do I need any rules to allow traffice to route to the pix?

Hi X,

What's the point here? Are you trying to replace the pix packet filters with ISA firewalls?

Are you trying to route a VPN around the ISA server completely?

If that's what you are trying to do, there are two problems with your design..

First, you would be better off just terminating the VPN tunnel on the ISA server.  You are creating an "end around" your primary firewall.  Even if you pass the tunnel through the ISA server, your ISA server can't inspect the traffic because it's encrypted, but at least it's not creating the "end around".

Second, even if you decide you want to do the "end around" anyway, the traffic should never touch the ISA server.  You really shouldn't use ISA as a router in the sense that you have traffic going out the same interface it came in.

Hey thanks for the reply.  We got around the problem by adding the route statement to all the users via loging script and created a locallat.txt file and placed that on all the users machines.  I tried to exclude the IP range on the server but that did not work.  After I did more reading on here is when I thought to try the route statement on the users machines.  It is working great now and we still have ISA protecting users and offering proxy benefits.
Thanks again.
