firebox edge x15 configuration issues
Posted on 2006-04-02
We have just installed a firebox egde x15 on our network. We want to use the muvpn feature.
we are using a ZOOM x3 ADSL modem.
Our problem is we cannot get the external static IP assigned by our ISP to configured onto to the external interface of the firebox.
We have put the router in bridged mode with DHCP on but all that happens is the external interface of the edge recieves a DHCP IP of 192.168.111.1, and all traffice bewteen the watchguard and the router is blocked or stopped. We have tried manual configuration but have a problem with entry for external gateway. Our ISP is demon internet and there gateway IP is on a differnet subnet to our static IP, which is an invalid configuration according to our firebox. ergo we are stuck. Has anyone got one of these things working with demon internet ADSL?
It works as a firewall only with following config:
trusted interface 192.168.195.254
external interface 192.168.111.2
Gateway (Zoom router) 192.168.111.1
The external interface is then placed in the DMZ, which allows us the access it from the internet using the static IP, but the MUVPN doesnt work.
Any help would be much appreciated.
