How can I change default gateway for IPCop
Posted on 2011-02-11
I have an IPCop Server that I need to change the default gateway for. We need to switch the IP address for getting to the internet from 71.113.x.x (DSL) to 75.111.x.x (Comcast Cable) and increase our bandwidth.
I did not install this server and know little to nothing about IPCop, but it looks like eth0 on the server, which I do have root access to, is the interface that everything is going out. Eth0's IP address is the 71.113.x.x when I do an ifconfig eth0 as root (which is the static IP address from Verizon). I recently added a Comcast connection coming into our network and is connected to a firewall which I've got a VLAN set up on so everything from the network with IPCop goes out to a private IP address of 192.168.1.254 (default gateway) on the Firewall and is sent to the 75.111.x.x Comcast cable internet, which has 8x the bandwidth as the DSL.
I've changed all the default gateways on each of the clients to 192.168.1.254 and when IPCop is turned off in Internet Explorer I go right out the correct interface on the firewall and it works correctly. Problem is, this is a school and I need to have a web filter running. When IPCop is turned on, on the client, IPCop sends everything through the 71.113.x.x DSL connection and its much slower.
Can I do this through the GUI Admin portion? I can't find where I can do it there.
So the problem is knowing how to change IPCop so it goes out the new internet connection so I can use the bandwidth until I get better web filtering solution. Any help would be appreciated. I can't turn off the DSL and stop paying for it until everything goes out the Comcast connection.
