Multiple Lan default Gatway IP's



  • Im replacing a cisco router that had the secondary IP address rule configured on it. So basicly it was using 192.168.230.5 and 192.168.230.1 as the default gateway for the networks. The .5 address was used for the DHCP pool and the .1 for static assigned devices. (dont ask me but kinda screwy). So we set everying up with the .1 address and everything is great till we find out that 1 server is set with the .5 and cant get ahold of the company to fix it. Is there anyway to make the lan have 2 ip address assigned to it on the same network????

    Sure, just add the second IP as a Virtual IP under Firewall > Virtual IPs.

    For that role, IP Alias, CARP, or Proxy ARP should work fine.
