Currently I have a setup as follows
--> (PUBLIC IP) ROUTER ( -> ( box running
shorewall ( --> LAN
                                    |----- VPN tunnel (
The first router has a permanent VPN with our corporate office. I use
shorewall box to control traffic from corporate office as well as net.
What I am trying to do is to add a static route to access another corporate
subnet through a gateway in the tunnelled subnet.
I want to access through I can see the subnet from my firewall machine through the existing
I want to add a static route to via gateway
I tried to add a static route using the route command and it does not allow
me to add a route with default gateway of anything other than the one
specific to one my interfaces.
Is there any other option using shorewall ?
