Watchguard XTM515 STATIC IP to XTMv DYNAMIC IP BOVPN
Posted on 2013-12-20
XTMv is a small office virtual firewall running on hyper-v. This server was taken out of a data center where it had a public IP and not is sitting behind a comcast router with an dynamic IP. The branch office "everything" is using the comcast business router for DHCP so ideally would like to just get around changing anything that would affect the local network as it is. With that said, the local network is 10.1.10.0/24 and the XTMv still has the same external NIC but configured with 10.1.10.74/24 so we can manage it. The Xtmv's role is not to provide firewall services for this network but only for the VM's that reside within it/next to the XTMv. Unable to get the tunnel up and running by simply changing the external/static IP that was in place to the 10.1.10.74/24. The local network of the hyper-v server and the vm's are 10.11.0.0/21 so not sure if that is causing this. I put 10.1.10.74 in the DMZ without any luck and just stumped about which way to go here.
