Fritz!Box 7360 and 7490: static routes over VPN don’t work

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/03/15

I’ve tried the below on a Fritz!Box 7490 configuration and it fails as well.

The case is that I’ve a VPN (see Getting Fritz!Box LAN-LAN VPN to work) between a Fritz!Box 7360 (having internal IP 192.168.24.1) and a Fritz!Box 7490 (having internal IP 192.168.71.1). This is how it looks from the Fritz!Box 7360 side:

Name Address in the Internet local network remote network
80.100.143.119 80.100.143.119 192.168.24.0/24 192.168.171.0/24

On the 192.168.171.0/24 side of things, the internal IP of the 80.100.143.119 router is 192.168.171.1. Inside the 192.168.171.0/24 network is is another router (192.168.171.22) having an internal 192.168.71.0/24 network.

Basically I want to tell the Fritz!Box 7360 (at IP 192.168.24.1) that there is an internal route to 192.168.71.0/24 via 192.168.171.22.

I found and read Accessing multiple IP networks behind a FRITZ!Box over VPN connection between two FRITZ!Boxes | FRITZ!Box 7360 | AVM International.

Based on it, I wanted to add this route on the 192.168.24.1:

Static IPv4 Route

IPv4 network 192.168.71.0
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.171.22
Enabled X

When you do that, you get this error message:

An error occurred.
Error description: The route is illegal.
Please enter your data again. If the error occurs again, please consult AVM Support.

How can I get this route to work?

  1. […] while ago, I wanted the CCR1009 to do PPTP as Fritz!Box 7360 and 7490: static routes over VPN don’t work (so I could only VPN to the WAN side of the CCR1009). However, it would not pass through the […]
