 Subject:  is this a really hard routing question? Who should I ask... was: Funky netowrk routing question... Is this possible with m0n0wall?

Trying to find a routing guru who can point me in the right direction...

Sorry for the repost...

That's my problem... a) won't work - ports are limited... also, it's not
really that simple... there are potentially hundreds of hosts involved...

b) might work - that was my goal... might be possible, but if I'm using
public IP's, wasting netowrk and gateway addresses (4 IP's for each host)
would be a problem.

I've heard of /32 subnetting and wonder if that is what I need, but can't
find it documented anywhere how it works or if BSD supports the concept.

Like if hosts were:
       IP          Netmask         Gateway
Host A
Host B

I think the theory is that host A forward to the gateway anything bound for
host B, which would echo it back...

The simplest way to describe the problem might be to consider a switch with
vlans... this is sort of what exists, but I CAN NOT control or change it.
       VLAN A     VLAN B ......
Port1    X          X
Port2    X          -
Port3    -          X

If my router is at port 1, I need to firewall, fitler and reflect any
traffic from port2 that I want to reach port3.

Thanks for your thoughts.

If you would:

a) Put 2 NIC's on the network, each configured in one subnet


b) Add an alias to one NIC, that exists in the other subnet

a should be possible, for b, I don't know how to do that in m0n0wall...

Subject: [m0n0wall] Funky netowrk routing question... Is this possible
with m0n0wall?

I've got a network that I don't control all of...

My remote sites are connected through a network which prevents them from
communicating directly.

Currently, using my providers router, and having my hosts on separate
subnets, I can connect them:

Host A / Subnet A ---------\
				Big mess I don't control------>Router
Host B / Subnet B ---------/

All traffic from host A and host B must go to the router.

I now want to have my own router... if the router has an alias on subnet A,
and an alias on subnet B, can the clients at host A see host B?

Can I make by subnet a /32 to prevent waiting all those extra IP's?

I'll state this again - not to beat anyone over the head with it, but there
is NO way for host A to simply contact host B through the network... has to
do with ATM allocation and so on...

Can anyone help me or refer me to where I should be reading?

Thanks in advance.
