i'm currently trying to set up a monowall system mainly for use as
VPN-Server (pptp). I've done this before for a standalone m0n0wall with
a DSL-Modem connection without any problems.
Now i have to set up a similiar system but the difference is that there
is a Router involved that is used as WLAN AP and VoIP-Gateway/Server.
It's a very popular router (at least in germany) called FritzBox. This
is a router with portfilter and WLAN AP so nothing unusual. The special
thing about it is that you could also connect your telephone system to
this router (ISDN/Analog) and could use your normal phones for VoIP (i'm
Normaly i would to set the FritzBox into modem-mode, in this mode the
router will act like a normal modem so that m0n0 could handle the
connection to the Internet as usual. Unfortenatly this will also disable
the phoning/VoIP features.
So i tried to set up WAN as DHCP, the link is up but m0n0 seems to
doesn't ask for an IP and no PC in the LAN could connect to m0n0.
Next thing was to set up m0n0 as Static. Fritzbox will connect to the
net (and to the WAN port on m0n0) and every pc should use m0n0 as
gateway (using the LAN port on m0n0). In this setup i can connect to the
m0n0wall but i can't establish a internet connection. (VoIP works fine,
so the fritzbox itself is connected correctly.)
Maybe someone on the list got itself a m0n0wall with using a Fritzbox
and could give me some tips.
