Can m0n0wall act as a router (not a NAT device)?
I have a problem setting up m0n0wall (and yes I have read the manual, faq,
googled hours and still dont get it work).
My isp gives two networks 126.96.36.199/24 and 188.8.131.52/24 and gatewys
184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11. Endusers in lan uses these ip:s, gateway
18.104.22.168 and a mask /20.
So how do I set the m0nowall to act as a router?
Using m0nowall as a bridge only works half well because traffic shapering isn't
working properly in bridge mode...
Could someone please help.
Network is like this:
Isp gave us:
Networks 22.214.171.124./24 and 126.96.36.199/24
Gateways 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206/24 (shows to lan as a "same machine"
(has same mac address)
wan-interface (tryed to set up the wan interface using 220.127.116.11/30 and
lan (big layer 2 switch network)
Hosts in lan use: (It's hard to change these addresses)
Ips from 18.104.22.168-253 and 22.214.171.124-253
Netmask is 255.255.240.0 (/20) Smallest mask that makes possible hosts to
directly talk eatch other in the lan.
gateway for host is same 126.96.36.199
So basicly the network in lan is 188.8.131.52/20 using gateway 184.108.40.206
(this is the way I tried to set up the lan interface).
Is the big netmask /20 in a lan problem? Because we only use/"own" part of it
(networks 220.127.116.11/24 and 18.104.22.168/24) so it leaves big gap between
as those networks are already used in the internet by our isp. Can this be a
problem to our isp? Can isp handle this problem? Netmask /20 seems to work fine
in bridge mode.
How do I correctly set up the static routes or routing in generally in m0n0wall?
If m0n0wall cannot do it by it self, could a another router help? How to setup
this with another router? Or do I need help from isp to get this working?
Whatkind of ip networks I then need? and how to set up them in m0n0wall?
What distro would you recoment to be used in a router? Are there any good
open-source ones that are speasialiced for (advanced) routing)? For testing
could exsample. Damm small linux live cd used to build a test router to test
this out? How would I set up routes in it. Using the ip command? Exsamples?
