OPT1 Interface



  • Having a little trouble getting my second WAN to work. Ping is unsuccessful.

    On the Interfaces>OPT1  tab, section for IP Configuration. what goes in the IP address and gateway input boxes if my connection information is as follows…

    IP Address:    192.168.2.5
    Broadcast:    192.169.2.255
    subnet mask:  255.255.255.0
    Default Route: 192.168.2.1
    Primary DNS:  192.168.2.1
    2nd DNS:        68.87.64.146

    Thanks ahead of time.

    Did you create firewall rules on the OPT1 tab?
    Per default everything gets blocked.
    (or do you want to use this interface only for outbound traffic? then you dont need a rule)

    255.255.255.0 translates into /24

  • Your broadcast and subnet addressing do not match. One of those is wrong.

    That is my fault, I should have posted this in the Virtualization Section.

    Thanks for the advice, I dont think I did this time. The first time around it worked fine, than broke it  ;D followed the same walk through, must have missed a step. i'll report back.
