Two IP address for WAN
My Internet ISP is my cable company. So, i connect through a cable
modem. I setup a m0n0wall firewall behind the cable modem. I gets it's
IP address via DHCP. When I go to the webGUI Configuration page under
Status|Interfaces it lists the WAN interface as indicated below:
MAC address 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
IP address XX.YY.ZZZ.153
Subnet mask 255.255.248.0
Why the two addresses? Gateway and IP.
I can ping the gateway from outside the LAN but can't ping the IP
address. What gives?
Any help is appreciated.
