I am trying to separate my wired LAN from my wireless LAN (WLAN). Both
networks need access to the Internet. I plan/hope to tunnel/VPN from the
OPT1 network to the LAN network using TauVPN when needed.
PPOE -- WAN
LAN -- 192.168.10.1 /24 <---- can access the Inet from
OPT1 -- 192.168.20.1 /24 <--- cannot access the Inet from
I can ping OPT1 (192.168.20.1) from a PC (192.168.10.201) on the LAN
network, but I cannot ping OPT1 from a laptop that is directly connected
with a cross-over cable. I also cannot pull an IP via DHCP on OPT1. I set
a static IP on my laptop (192.168.20.50 /24) and got a good physical
connection to OPT1 using the cross-over cable. I still cannot ping OPT1.
I have a rule on OPT1 to allow access anywhere (Inet-- similar to the
default rule on the LAN interface). I have DHCP setup on both interfaces.
Once I can at least get Inet access on Opt1, I will then add a rule to block
access from LAN to OPT1 and also the other way around. I have left the NAT
settings to default.
What I am I missing?
Thanks in advance,
