To provide access to internal network resources, the Access Gateway must be capable of routing data to the internal networks. By default, the Access Gateway uses a static route.
The networks to which the Access Gateway can route data are determined by the configuration of the Access Gateway routing table and the Default Gateway specified for the Access Gateway.
The Access Gateway routing table must contain the routes necessary to route data to any internal network resource that a user may need to access.
Configuring a Static Route
When setting up communication with another host or network, a static route might need to be added from the Access Gateway to the new destination if you do not use dynamic routing.
To configure a static route
To test a static route
- In the configuration utility, in the navigation pane, expandÂ SystemÂ and clickÂ Diagnostics.
- In the details pane, underÂ Utilities, clickÂ Ping.
- UnderÂ Parameters, inÂ Host name, type the name of the device.
- UnderÂ Advanced, inÂ Source IP Address, type the IP address of the device and clickÂ Run.If you are successfully communicating with the other device, messages indicate that the same number of packets were transmitted and received, and zero packets were lost.
If you are not communicating with the other device, the status messages indicate that zero packets were received and all the packets were lost. To correct this, repeat the procedure to add a static route.
