I have an exsisting network about 800 nodes the main router/firewall is a Watchguard Firebox III 1000
the firebox is using Nat, public address X.X.X.197 also aliasing a x.x.x.195/ private address 192.168.1.1 and doing port forwarding for Http, Smtp, Vpn etc. All the Dns Records are being pointed to the x.x.x.197. this now sits on a T1 that has about
10 unused static public IP's
I have a Dsl router that has been unused for 1 year that has 5 static public Ip addresses
I have a new Linksys RV082 dual wan router.
So I would like to configure the linksys wan1 with the T1 and wan2/Dmz with the DSL for failover
and slip the linksys behind the firebox with the least amount of reconfiguration to the lan, basicaly
configure the linksys like a switch which will just forward all traffic to the X.X.X.197 address
Is this even possible? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
P.S on my last attempt , I pulled the T1 from the external interface on the firebox, inserted into wan1 of the linksys
pluged the external interface of the firebox into lan1 port of the linksys, the firebox then disapeard from the lan, the default gateway 192.168.1.1 which is the firebox lan ip. I could not see or ping the firebox untill I reversed the configuration.
wan 1 on the linksys was configured with a x.x.x.196, lan ip was x.x.x.198 all public static IP's, all firewall features disabled
and a route enterd to forward all traffic to x.x.x.197
