[Resolved] Advice on comcast setup

  • Greetings,
     I am setting up a single WAN scenario.  Please see below:

    (WAN/Comcast network)
                [Cable Router]
                         |  (public CIDR/28 address space)
                [pfSense Router]
                   /     |    
                  /    (DMZ)    
                 /                (WLAN private)
         (LAN private)

    What I'm trying to accomplish is to have the DMZ utilize the same CIDR /28 address block that exists on the WAN side of the pfSense Router.  I'm trying to find out the most efficient way of doing this, be it setting up a VLAN, setting up a bridge, etc.  Anyone have any thoughts?

    I've seen posts mention CARP and virtual IP addresses, but unfortunately I don't know what these are.

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

  • Found the answer in the book "The Definitive Guide to pfSense".  I'm not wild about how the book is laid out, but it had the information I needed…Guess it turned out to be a $35.00 question.  If you're looking to do the same configuration, I'd go read that book.
