Yesterday I was searcing for a *nix based firewall/gateway and I came across ZeroShell. It seemed to be something that i was looking for so i dl’ it and installed it on my embedded ALIX platform. Success! But… I cant reach the internet through this box. I’m very familiar with IpCop, Smoothwall, ClarcConnect, M0n0wall, Firestarter etc. and everytime I’ve used any of these I’ve managed to connect to Internet within 30 seconds after setup is finished, but not with ZeroShell. Then I wonder if I have done something wrong or there are som more configuration that is needed before it will work properly.
Here’s the situation :
INTERNET > ZyXel xDSL router in bridge mode >ZeroShell
I’ve enabled DHCP on WAN ETH01 and recieved a public IP (83.108.119.xxx) from ZyXel
LAN ETH00 is 10.0.0.1 and DHCP is enabled (and working).
What I want to accomplish is :
– Internet connection
– NAT with regular port forwarding when necessary
