Hello all Geekzoners,


I have a query about Fortinet site to site IPsec VPN. I have setup a site to site VPN between 2 sites and traffic is flowing fine here. I can get to hosts on the remote site and vice versa. However when doing a trace route from a host on Site A to a host on Site B (both source and destination are part of the interesting traffic for the encryption domain) I get a hop from Site B's WAN interface. Is this something to worry about?

It is the penultimate hop (one before the actual host ) I am trying to reach. So second to last hop from host I am trying to reach in the trace route is the actual WAN IP address of the remote site.

I have never seen that happen before, but I wouldn't be too worried, if the LAN ips are both internal then they must be encapsulated to be able to see each other. You could always bring the tunnel down and try tracert to confirm you don't get anywhere.
