Hi everyone!

I have two astaro firewalls with a wireless bridge between them:

astaro 1 (site a):
eth0 --> LAN
eth1 --> PUBLIC
eth2 --> WIRELESS

astaro2 (site b):
eth0 --> LAN
eth1 --> PUBLIC
eth2 --> WIRELESS

I would like to let users in site a use the internet (and mail) from site b.

Which kind of rules / best procedure should I use?

Thanks!

that means u have internet at both sites..

if both firewalls are in same network then no issue just create internet user policy at site b.


if both firewalls are having different subnets then create a routing policy that internet will traffic will route through site B route.

allow site A users to access that route .. ins site B add users of site a in Internet users policy  ..

all the best

Hi there!

I'd need a bit more information to tackle this...

What do you mean by "on the same network"?

The astaros share the same network using the wireless eth interface.

I have, as default firewall on site a, the wireless bridge interface.
This way all my packets get on the wireless bridge way to site b.
Which kind of rule should I prepare on site b to allow users to get out?
Nat wireless interface to public?

both sites are connected with wireless bridge.. .that means both sides same sub net working....


in your scenario all site A users should ping to the Site B firewall just create internet access policy for site A users on Site B firewall.

just the internet traffic will find it's way over site B firewall.

____________________________________

in case both sites sub nets are different then you have to create a routing on both firewalls to communicate each other. and site A lan traffic should be able top reach the site B firewall...

all the best.

Adding a NAT rule for site a LAN on site b astaro did the trick: Thanks
