Disabling Nat with Thomson TG585v7

Hi chaps,

Does anyone know how I can disable NAT and firewalling completely on a Thomson TG585v7 ? I want to use them only as ADSL modems to connect to the adsl line. The thomsons (we have several) will in turn be plugged in to a load balancing VPN router which will do the complex stuff, but for this to work easily we will need to disable all NAT and firewalling on the thomsons.

I can't find specific instructions anywhere, so I'm resigned almost to replace them, but ideally I'd prefer not to.

Thanks

Olly

It looks like these are the commands you want:

NAT
nat ifconfig intf = Internet translation = disabled

Firewall
firewall config state = disabled

Without one here with which to experiment, I can't tell for sure if those commands will do exactly what you want, though.

Here's a link to all documentation for the TG585 (note the version tabs there)

And here's the link I used to fetch the TG585v7 CLI manual

Turns out the solution is simply to confifgure the Thomson modem using the Multiple IP configuration mode in the setup wizard. This makes it function as a bridge and all IP traffic is just shoved over to the internal interface
