Cannot get public static IP to work on WAN



  • Hello!

    We recently replaced a Cisco ASA with a Netgate XG-7100. Our ISP has us setup with a block of 5 static IPs.

    When I set the WAN interface in pf with one of those static IP addresses, I cannot get internet on our LAN. I cannot ping out from pf either. If I set the WAN interface to the LAN subnet of our router, I can get internet.

    Our router is set to passthrough mode. To test, I connected a laptop directly to the router and set it's IP as the static, and I can get internet there.

    Any ideas? I am not seeing anything in the firewall log that shows that it is blocking traffic.



  • WAN needs an IP, netmask and gateway. LAN needs an IP and netmask. Assuming those are correctly set, it should just work. Post screenshots of what you have done with public details obscured.

    "If I set the WAN interface to the LAN subnet of our router, I can get internet."

    What do you mean here, exactly? If your WAN and LAN are on the same private network, you have Internet??? That doesn't make any sense.



  • Got it working. The selected gateway under WAN, was not set as the default IPv4 Gateway under Routing -> Gateways.
    Thanks!



  • Glad to hear you got it going.
