 Subject:  Setting Red NIC IP Address under PPPoE
 Date:  Mon, 7 Aug 2006 09:16:48 +0200
I wish to use utTracestar, a Windows-based tool to check signal strength on
a wireless UTD.
While this tool works fine when connected to a workstation, it is more
tricky to setup if using a firewall.

Static IP addresses are not an option as we run DHCP and PPPoE
(i.e. IP is assigned by the ISP on connection)

Under IPcop firewall, a way exists to specify the IP address of the WAN NIC.
I would like to know if it is possible to do this under M0n0wall.

IPcop instructions are as follows :-
	Edit  /etc/rc.red 
	Find these lines (search for
	Change to ( -> in one location)
    #system ("/sbin/ifconfig", $netsettings{'RED_DEV'}, "",
      system ("/sbin/ifconfig", $netsettings{'RED_DEV'}, "",
   #"netmask", "", "broadcast", "", "up");
     "netmask", "", "broadcast", "", "up")

Any ideas would be appreciated.

TIA . . .  Robin.
