Multiple ips / VIP's?
Maybe this isn't the right area but. . .
I have 2 internal lans, 10.x and 192.x (each on their own pfsense box)
I was given a 216.x /29 subnet for public ip use
but I must use our isp's 216.x /30 subnet ip for our link out.
So what I'd like to do is this. .
10.x –> 216.x /29 --
--------> 216.x /30 ------> internet
192.x --> 216.x /29 --
I know it's possible - even if I have to setup a 3rd box as a dedicated router - but I'm looking for the elegance of using VIP's (or similar)
Any pros wishing to bestow their wisdom?
Do you have any reason to use these 216.x /29 addresses
I'll be expanding the 216.x /29 to our wireless network and webserver cluster.
Why? Are you thinking an additional nic per network and just route through /30?
Yes i did thought that for one solution
But just for argument sake - could I create a VIP (216.x /29) for each internal network and then route them all to the 216.x /30 link out?
actual VIP GW internet
10.1.x –> 216.x.x.100 --> 216.x /30 --> * * * *
192.x --> 216.x.x.101 -->
172.x --> 216.x.x.102 -->
10.9.x --> 216.x.x.103 -->
Is this the way it would work?
That might work, but i think the problem is in basics of networking gateway has to be on same network. -> with that said you can't use CARP virtual ip's
You can use PARP or IP alias version of virtual ip
