Purpose of adding static route for ssl vpn subnet to ssl.root interface?

Hi!
 
I am running tunnel mode ssl vpn without adding static route of my SSL VPN subnet pointing to ssl.root and everything works fine.
 
whats the use of setting up this static route?
 
thanks

The reason is to allow inside devices/applications reach the clients from their ends. Especially when the client machine is running some UDP based applications connected to a server, which needs to send spontaneous updates or something periodically or on-demand, the server can't reach the client to deliver the UDP packets.

That's another reason if you have other routers/firewalls relying on redistributed routes from the FGT over a routing protocol, if the FGT is not their default GW.
