Hey

I have a Watchguard XTM33 firewall :)

I have 1 internet connection in port 0 (DHCP)
I have 1 IPTV connection in port 1 (DHCP)

All internet traffic to port 0 (internet)
Traffic to network 240.10.0.0/24 have to go to port 1.

How do I create a route? (using webgui)

Thanks in advance.

Mike

What route do you need to create?

The watchguard should be smart enough to send anything that is heading to the 240.10.0.0/24 subnet out port 1, and anything else should be sent out port 0 towards the default gateway.

But if needed, additional can be created by going through the Watchguard Policy Manager.  On the network menu, select Routes.

Port 0 IP 92.92.0.1
Port 1 IP 10.20.1.1 and behind this is 240.10.0.0 net

Okay.  At the main screen of the Web UI, after you log in, choose the "network" menu from the top of the window, then select "routes".

Click "Add"

in the Choose Type dropdown, choose "Network IPv4"

in the route To box, type in "240.10.0.0/24"

In the Gateway box, type in 10.20.1.1

click "OK"

Make sure you save the configuration afterwards.

I get the following error When adding route. "Network IP is not valid because its first octet is over 233 * Ip addresses with octet over 233 arme reserved address spaces."

Oh yeah.  Anything 240 and above is considered a class E internet address and is reserved for "experimental" use.  They aren't considered publicly routable and many routers block them as a general rule.  I'm not sure you'll be able to get the watchguard to route that.

RFC 6890 lists IP subnets that are reserved for various reasons.

http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6890

I'm not sure if it's an option, but you might consider changing the address of that subnet to one that is recognized as routable.
