I need some help configuring this scenario. I have four public addresses
from my ISP. These four addresses are part of a class C network that is
shared by others -- bridged. Let's say my addresses are 220.127.116.11 to
18.104.22.168 with a gateway address of 22.214.171.124 and a netmask of 255.255.255.0
(/24). I have a m0n0wall router attached to a DSL Modem with WAN address
configured to 126.96.36.199. This m0n0wall presents a LAN network of
I would like to configure a second m0n0wall router behind the first one.
The WAN interface of this second router needs to be one of the public ip
addresses in my address range . say 188.8.131.52.
This would be easy if both of the m0n0walls were in the same location . just
attach the DSL Modem to a switch and drive the WAN Interfaces of both
m0n0walls from this switch. What makes this configuration interesting is the
LAN interface of the first m0n0wall is a long distance wireless network.
The second m0n0wall will be on the other side of this wireless network --- 5
miles from the first m0n0wall.
What technique can I use to configure the first m0n0wall and configure the
WAN of the second m0n0wall? Static Routing, NAT 1:1, Server NAT, or ???
I've tried several configurations and find that I need a push in the right
Thanks in advance!! Greg
