Weird Routing Behaviour

I have just replaced a Draytek for a Meraki MX68. The internal network range is, the MX is on .254, same as the old Draytek. I have another network accessible via a Cisco Router (i don't manage this) connected to my switch, Switch IP is The router for this network is IP, the other network behind this (a manafacturing system) is addressed


I can access the 2 devices in the ( / network from without issue, mapped drives etc software runs that accesses this platform etc no issues.


I have just setup a remote access VPN on the Meraki, the subnet I've setup for this is


From the VPN I can access all devices in the network, with no issues at all. I am unable to talk to any devices on the network.


The MX has a static route added to 16 via


What could be the issue stopping me reaching network?


Any help appreciated.

Does the router know how to reach the client VPN subnet?

Hi Ryan - your first question:

Do you have the static route set for VPN mode enabled?


Where is that settings, If I've set a static route isn't that the same? IS there a VPN routing section?


Second Question:


The router has the meraki set as it's DG, I assume....(have no access to this currently)

Kind of a big deal

Sounds like the other router doesnt know the way back to


Make a packet capture on the lan where that router is connected. Start a ping from a vpn client . Look if the icmp traffic if it is send on the lan to that router and if you receive return traffic  back to that vpn client
