Interesting Hop

Hey all,


Hope you all are doing well. 


I've got an MX95 set up with Client VPN. The MX is 192.168.5.x subnet and Client VPN is 192.168.10.x


I have a Z3 in an alternate location that has the 192.168.20.x subnet. i have a Phone connected to that device for testing. i can test with a computer, but I'm not at that site.


I connect to the Client VPN  and tracert a device on the Z3's subnet and i get an extra hop with an IP not in my scope attached. And for the life of me, I don't know what this is.


I also tried a tracert from the 192.168.5.x subnet to 192.168.20.x subnet and it only takes the one hop.


Screenshots of both below.

With Client VPN:




From 192.168.5.x subnet:



Im trying to identify the hop


Does anyone know if Client VPN or Meraki Auto VPN assigns an arbitrary IP to the route?
