Branch office can't access HQ internet connection?? Help please?

  1. Problems with accessing internet that is connected to the HQ from a
    Branch office.

    Here is the setup:

    Branch ->foreign network ->HQ->Internet
    We are not using the foreign network for internet but rather want the
    users at the branch to access the internet through the HQ's fast
    connection. We are able to access the HQ networks but not able to
    access the internet. The default routes look OK as do the
    static routes however the branch traffic seems to drop at the
    connection to the foreign network. This seems to me to be a very simple
    setup which can be done without advanced routing even though there are
    multiple Qtaggged VLANs at each side. Am I missing something? Does this
    need to be done with OSPF (I think not) or with BGP (which seems more
    likely but unnecessary).
    Any input would be appreciated.

  2. You haven't indicated what kinds of devices you are using, or the
    software version.

    What you report would be normal with a Cisco PIX running 5.x or 6.x
    software; Cisco PIX and Cisco ASA running 7.x software would default
    to the same behaviour but make provision for allowing it if
    the connection from the branch to HQ is via a VPN.

  3. Hello Walter, thank you very much for your reply. Your guess was spot
    on, we are actually trying to connect a branch Contivity 1750 with a
    Cisco Pix 515e running version 7. They are talking over a VPN,
    obviously. It is possible that the issue is with the Contivity alone,
    however we are trying to eliminate all other issues first. Does that

    to read.
