Cannot access internet from Firebox optional network
Posted on 2009-07-08
One of our customers has a Watchguard Firebox Edge x20e-w and they want to give internet access to their customers while they are onsite.
I had initially intended to use the Wireless Guest network on the Firebox, but the area requiring coverage is quite large, so have decided to put in two additional LinkSys wireless access points and connected them to the Opt port on the Firebox via a PoE switch.
Users can connect to the Optional network wirelessly through the LinkSys APs and are receiving DHCP leases from the Firebox BUT they cannot connect to the internet.
In the Firebox log I have many entries as follows:
Jul 8 15:38:41 kernel deny out eth2 61 udp 20 128 192.168.112.103 192.168.112.1 50851 53 (default)
Where 192.168.112.103 is a client connected wirelessly to the Optional network and 192.168.112.1 is the Optional network interface of the Firebox.
On the Allowed MAC Addresses tab in the Optional Network settings, the box Restrict access by Hardware MAC Address is NOT checked.
Is there a setting somewhere I'm missing? Internet and BOVPN connections from the Trusted network work fine.
