  • in reply to: Vlan Firewall Bandwidth rules #49178


    Thanks, can’t believe i didn’t think of that!!!!

    I remember on an older release have massive problems with qos on vlans – perhaps it wasn’t supported or perhaps i’ve learnt a thing or two since then.

    Cheers for the help.

    certainly a thing or two to experiment with.

    Will have a play when i get time and let you know.


    in reply to: Passing static IPs #47591


    Ok how to pass on public static IP’s to vlans

    make sure you have a dhcp asssigned address on the wan nic not a static.

    add this for each static ip to vlan you to the Startup/Cron – Post Boot script

    Note the address is the local address assigned to the vlan interface

    # Startup Script
    route add -net 89.xxx.xxx.90 netmask gw # Users Router IP

    Then add an ip to the vlan interface of say 89.xxx.xxx.91 subnet

    Done, assign the machine on that vlan with:
    IP: 89.xxx.xxx.90
    GW: 89.xxx.xxx.91

    bingo job done, I have also assigned a DHCP to the local address so that a machine on the end of it can get a dhcp local address to test connection if needed.

    Hi Fulvio,

    Thanks for the reply

    here’s a few lines from /usr/bin/dedicatedip

    #ifconfig ppp0:1 89.xxx.xxx.192 netmask # Assigned to VLAN17 – Users Router
    #ifconfig ppp0:2 89.xxx.xxx.193 netmask # Assigned to VLAN17 – Gateway
    #ifconfig ppp0:3 89.xxx.xxx.194 netmask # Assigned to VLAN12 – Gateway
    #ifconfig ppp0:4 89.xxx.xxx.195 netmask # Assigned to VLAN12 – Users Router

    ifconfig eth0.17:1 89.xxx.xxx.192 netmask # Gateway
    route add -net 89.xxx.xxx.193 netmask gw # Users Router

    ifconfig eth0.12:1 89.xxx.xxx.194 netmask # Gateway
    route add -net 89.xxx.xxx.195 netmask gw # Users Router

    basically if gives one of the static public ip’s as a gateway address and one to the first on that vlan ie

    machines on this vlan can then set their ip address as a public ip and a gateway of that on the router.

    bit of fiddling to the firewall to configure access rights and all is done.

    Hope this helps
