 Subject:  how to reach modem om WAN port
 Date:  Wed, 12 Jan 2011 22:45:30 +0100

Currently I have the WAN port of my monowall firewall (latest beta 1.33) 
comnnected to an ADSL router. The ADSL router gets the outside address. 
The link between those two is I can reach the ADSL 
router fine from the LAN side ( of my monowall fw.

Now, I want to move to a situation where the ADSL router is replaced by 
a ADSL modem. The WAN port of the monowall router will be doing PPPoE 
and will get the public addresses (IPv4 and IPv6) assigned by that PPP 
process from my ISP. But how can I reach the ADSL modem now???

The modem sends syslog data om port 514 which I would like to capture 
and I might need to login to the webbased configuration of the modem.

One solution I can think of is assigning a secondary addresss on the WAN 
port. There is no way how to do that, though... Is it possible at all, 
via the exec interface perhaps? I would be very grateful if somebody has 
a working solution for me.
