    Do you have a Cisco support contract for your Cisco 877 ?

    Sorry to hijack this thread, but I'm having the same problem on a Cisco 837.

    I can connect successfully to the router using pptp, but I can ping ONLY the router (, not any of the devices behind the router.

    If I manually execute a "route add MASK <allocated VPN IP address>"


    I can then hapily ping (and access) all my devices on the 192.168.1.x range.

    My question is therefore probably the same as the OP of this thread. How can I get the Cisco to automagically add a static route when I connect? I guess its via the "ip route ...." IOS command, but I don't know what else is required.

    Can anyone help? This is driving me nuts!
