routing failed to locate next hop - ASA-5506

Level 1
Level 1


I'm having some trouble setting up a 5506-X, and keep getting the error routing failed to locate next hop.

I don't have a router, all I have is the ASA and need to make this work.  The set up is two public IP's that need to statically route to two internal servers.  I need Outside to route to Inside, and Prod_Public to route to INTDMZ.

Inside is a VPN server.

INTDMZ is an app server.

I can only seem to ping the active default route at any time, and the other always times out.  When it times out, that's when I get the error in the logs.  I'm not sure I've set my routes, and static NATs correctly, and I've been banging my head against the wall on this one.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Stephen,

Can you check if you are able to ping the next hop for :

route Prod_Public xx.xx.xx.209 2

You should be able to ping the .209 IP.



Please rate helpful posts and mark correct answers.

I'm not currently at the location to test this, but when I added a host to the 192.168.10.X network, I could not gain an internet connection.  On the ASDM Log Monitor, I could see my DNS attempts from the host going out the 205 route, but it still would not connect, and I was not able to ping out.  I seen plenty of random connections attempting to come in.

I'll be at the location tomorrow to try to ping the next hop.
