    Hi,

    I’m currently a user of pfSense, but due to BSD related issues, I’m migrating to ZeroShell.

    On pfSense, to setup a gateway I only needed to choose a previously configured WAN interface. If the interface is a DHCP client, the IP of default gateway of this interface is used by the Gateway Configuration.

    On ZeroShell, apparently I need to explicitly write down the gateway IP of my WAN interface to add as gateway of my router.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi.

    I’m not sure how ZeroShell behaves as DHCP client on the WAN interface.
    But where is the problem to configure the WAN interface with fixed IPs? I would prefer fixed IPs.
    This way you would set the default gateway address by pressing the button “gateway” on “SETUP”->”Network”.
    Depending on the configuration of your WAN, it might be necessary to activate NAT for the WAN interface by pressing the button “NAT” and then adding the WAN interface.

    I can’t set this particular WAN with fixed IP, since my ISP sometimes changes it.

    But my problem is already solved now I understood that the routing table is automatically written when the DHCP client of the WAN interface receives the offer.
