Can't ping between instances with router on the middle (using VLAN)

Hi,

I have an instance that is working as a router (CSR1Kv) and I have two instances connected to the router (CSR1Kv) on different VLANs.

instance1 <vlan113> router-CSR1Kv <vlan198> instance2

The instance1 is having the subnet 192.168.113.2/24 that is able to ping router-CSR1Kv with IP 192.168.113.1/24 on VLAN-113 The instance2 is having the subnet 192.168.198.2/24 that is able to ping router-CSR1Kv with IP 192.168.198.1/24 on VLAN-198

I created the static route on instance1 of network 192.168.198.0/24 pointing to the gateway router-CSR1Kv. I created the static route on instance2 of network 192.168.113.0/24 pointing to the gateway router-CSR1Kv.

In theory, I should be able to ping between the VMs because the router is able to route the packets of both subnets but I can't even ping from instance1 the IP of the connected interface of router-CSR1Kv towards instance2.

That means that somehow I'm having a security or blocking point issue that is not allowing me to ping between two subnets that doesn't belong to the same network/netmask. In this case the CSR1Kv is an instance that is in the middle to provide the L3 communication of both instances BUT is not working.

Can somebody explain me how to solve this issue?, what can be the cause of this issue?

Thanks!
