Sonicwall SOHO3 set up as my DHCP server issuing private IPs to my local LAN (Win 2k machines)
connected to a Cisco 678 DSL Router connected to Qwest DSL
When my Cisco is configured to pull is IP info via DHCP from Qwest, everything works fine, Sonicwall pulls its WAN IP info from the Cisco, the Cisco gets a WAN IP 188.8.131.52 and and IP of 10.0.0.1, the Sonicwall receives an IP of 10.0.0.2 and a gateway of 10.0.0.1 and subnets of 255.255.255.0
Like I said, the above works perfectly, the LAN computers get IPs in the 192.168.168.x range, they use 192.168.168.1 (sonicwall internal IP) as they're gateway, they can surf the net, access email, the sonicwall protects us, we're happy, yada yada....
Now.... I leased a block of static IPs from Qwest, got assigned 184.108.40.206 thru 220.127.116.11. The label .128 as Reserved Network, .134 as Reserved Gateway, .135 as Reserved Broadcast, and the other 5 as user assignable.
Here's what I do to configure the Cisco 678
set nat disable
set dhcp server disable
set ppp wan0-0 ipcp 0.0.0.0
set ppp wan0-0 dns 0.0.0.0
set ppp wan0-0 login ktpc1
set ppp wan0-0 password xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
set int eth0 address 18.104.22.168
set int eth0 netmask 255.255.255.248
set int wan0-0 disable
set int wan0-0 close
set int wan0-0 vpi 0
set int wan0-0 vci 32
set int wan0-0 enable
I configure the Sonicwall to work in NAT enabled mode
I keep the LAN IP at 192.168.168.1 the mask as 255.255.255.0
I set the WAN Gateway address as 22.214.171.124
I set the sonicwall WAN (NAT Public address) as 126.96.36.199 (the first of my five user assignable)
I set the sonicwall WAN subnet as 255.255.255.248
I set the DNS servers to 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 (per Qwest)
I cannot surf the web, check email, nothing from my workstations.
Here's what I can do
From the Cisco - I can tracert all the way to the DNS servers (and presumably beyond)
From the sonicwall I can tracert as far as 220.127.116.11 (the WAN IP of the Cisco)
From the workstations I can tracert as far as 18.104.22.168 (the WAN IP of the Cisco)
Of course Qwest says its not their problem, sonicwall says its qwest's problem, blah blah.
I think the problem lies in the Cisco, I don't think it knows to route traffic from the LAN to the WAN, how do I check this?
Qwest did say it takes 24 hours for the IPs to become "routable". That was 30 hours ago. Is it possible that I just need to wait it out longer, or I am configuring something wrong?
