Static RRAS routes using dynamic DNS FQDNs

    I have a hub and spoke configured gateway<>gateway VPN WAN where each spoke
    end connects to the hub via Win Server 2003 RRAS and ISA erver 2001 packet
    filters. If the hub goes down, the spokes can't talk to each other becuase
    the ISA VPN wizard requires fixed IPs to setup the connection.

    Is there any way to hard wire them with fixed routes to their FQDNs? I'm
    using dynamic DNS to resolve the FQDNs.

    Thanks for ANY assistance.

    If you are using a hub and spoke model, all traffic between sites must
    go through the hub. That is how the model works.

    If you want the sites on the spokes to connect to each other directly,
    you need to use a different routing model. Each site would need to have
    enough routing info to contact each other site directly. With the hub and
    spoke method, each site sends all private traffic to the hub, and the hub
    handles the routing.
