ISP Public IP Address
I am a total newbie to Pfense, but have inherited a Pfense firewall that one of my clients currently uses.
They are going to be changing ISPs and therefore will be obtaining a new "Public" IP address.
I can see the current public IP address in the configuration and I can see it configured in the WAN status.
My question is: How do I and where do I go to change the Public IP address for my WAN connection? I can't find where it is defined.
Interfaces –> WAN
If it's configured as static you can configure the IP there.
Thanks for responding so quickly.
I just checked and there is no Static IP defined in that field as it stands now. I would presume that the current IP would be there if it were in fact Static?
What is the drop-down set to?
If memory serves me correct, PPPoE is DSL.
and yes, it is a DSL service provided by Bell.
Would I have to go the settings config within the DSL modem?
If it's set to PPPoE then you get your IP dynamically (or pseudo-static).
I don't think there is much to do for you when you get the new IP.
If you're changing the ISP, then you will need to update the username/password fields.
Thanks for all your assistance.
