Configuring static routes on Branch

  1. To create the necessary routes on Branch, go to Network > Static Routes and select Create New.
  2. Enter the new subnet created in the "Planning the new addressing scheme" section for HQ’s LAN in the Destination field, and select the VPN tunnel created in the "Configuring the IPsec VPN on Branch" section as the Interface (in the example, this is 10.1.1.0/24 and VPN-to-HQ).

  3. Create an additional route with the same Destination as the previous route, but this time change the Administrative Distance to 200 and select Blackhole as the Interface.
