I am new to Zeroshell, the software caught my eye due to its routing capabilities, but I am having a hard time understanding how to configure it. Please note that I know just enough routing to make me dangerous 😳
I have a Cable conneciton, within the connection, the ISP has provided me a static CIDR block of 16 IP’s, and 1 static address, what they are calling, “WAN IP” address.
I was wondering if I can get some help on configuring Zeroshell.
The IP information is as follows:
“WAN IP” 98.xxx.xx.249
“WAN GW” 98.xxx.xx.241
“WAN Netmask” 255.255.255.240
CIDR Block: 174.xx.xx.112/28
The only assistance that I have received from them, is that 174.xx.xx.112 is the “Network Address”, 174.xx.xx.127 is the “Broadcast Address”, and they suggested to use 174.xx.xx.113 as the Gateway. They want to sell me managed router services, but the price will be way to much, which is why I am hoping Zersoshell can be used.
My network topolgy is as follows:
Internet < --> Cable Modem < -->Zeroshell (3 Nic) < --> Astaro Firewall (3 Nic)< --> Internal LAN
I have Zeroshell installed (via live CD), on an old Dell Deminsion PIII 750 Mhz computer.
