Results that are similar to the following indicate that the connection is working:

Tracing route to 172.16.4.3 over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms [172.16.56.1] 2 1 ms <1 ms <1 ms [172.56.200.2] 3 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms [172.16.4.3] Trace complete. 

In the Tracert display:

  • 172.16.56.1 is the IP address of the ROUTER2 interface that connects to the New York intranet.

  • 172.56.200.2 is the IP address that ROUTER2 assigned to ROUTER1 for the VPN connection. The presence of this IP address in the Tracert output indicates that packets are moving across the site-to-site VPN connection.

  • 172.16.4.3 is the IP address of CLIENT1.
