Even if you could summarize the IPs of a country, it is not certain that it will stay the same for a long time. February 18, 2010 at 8:01 am #49722 deejayqMember i have the following configuration ________ / / + + / | | / + + + + + + / + + | vlan1 | | vlan1 | / | | | | | | | | Local networks +----+ Zeroshell | | ISP +--+ Internet cloud | | | | | | | + + | vlan2 | | vlan2 | + + + + + + | | + + ________ on vlan1 is routed the traffic to romania on vlan2 is routed all the other traffic i use freebsd and i want to use zeroshell i don’t know how to push the traffic to romanian ip’s thru vlan1 do you think that by using the following example will work? echo 1 romania >> /etc/iproute2/rt_tables ip route add default via x.x.x.x dev vlan1 table romania ip rule add from a.a.a.a/24 table romania ip rule add from b.b.b.b/24 table romania ... where x.x.x.x is the gateway from my provider and a.a.a.a/24, b.b.b.b/24 etc are the ip classes from romania thank you February 18, 2010 at 8:45 am #49723 ppaliasMember Well if you know the prefixes you can add them easily. Go to Network -> Router and Add a Static Route. Select a network with its mask and an interface instead of an IP. February 18, 2010 at 10:48 am #49724 deejayqMember so, it’s better to use the “main” routing table instead of two routing tables i thought that because of the two vlan ips with the same gateway i should have two routing tables anyway, thanks for the quick reply also, do you know how to make this changes permanent? and what about performance? i want to add about 5000 static routes via dev vlan1 February 18, 2010 at 12:59 pm #49725 ppaliasMember Once changes are saved, they become permanent. I don’t think there will be a performance issue, however you could aggregate some /24 prefixes to /23 or /22 February 19, 2010 at 6:25 am #49726 deejayqMember where does zeroshell save the static routes? what file? thank you Author Posts Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
