The scenario goes like this. You are working at your office (R1) and need to change the IP address and default route on the remote device (R2). The issue a factor of two things. The first is the fact that R2 is connected to your network with only one link. The other issue is R2 cannot use any dynamic routing protocols so you are stuck with a default route that is pointing at the next hop. If you are to change either of these facts you lose connectivity to R2. While there are other solutions to making this change, I am going to take the concept of floating static routes and an IP SLA to change both the IP address and the default route.

The following lab can be completed using any Cisco Emulator supporting the appropriate feature(s).
The purpose of this lab is to reinforce basic router configuration including naming the router, connecting two routers via an ethernet connection, and establishing logon procedures for remote access including secure remote access. Remote access if a key design feature of any network. It provides efficiency of management by preventing unnecessary trips to distant devices for simple tasks. Secure access is provided to prevent unauthorized access and data gathering from packet captures on plain text traffic.
