ADSL connection RFC 1483 Static IP
I am installing a pfSense in my homelab so I'm a little bit confuse about how I have to configure my WAN side.
This is a little diagram of my network.
Currently I have my Linksys router config in RFC 1483 Routed mode with my static IP so my question is, can I configure the public IP aaa.aaa.aaa.aa in the pfSense WAN interface? If so how?
I have been reading a lot about ADSL with PPPoE but I am not sure in my case.
Or should I configure a network between my pfSense WAN interface and my Linksys router like 192.168.1.0/24?
Thanks in advance!
It is better to have pfSense handle the authentication directly and not have double NAT.
What authentication method is your ISP using? Which ISP?
Yeah, I want to avoid this option but I am not sure how to configure my Linksys and pfSense.
I am not familiar with the ATM protocol so I am going to read some documents about the RFC 1483 and I will see!
Throw the Linksys in the bin, grab a Draytek Vigor 120 and set it to PPPoA bridge.
Then do PPPoE on your PfSense with your ISP's details (user/pass) and connect.
What a extrem solution! RFC 1483 doesn't need authentication ;)
I have the connection now working properly.
I have configured the Linksys as a single user with my static IP through RFC 1483 Routed. It should be the same configuration for any router.
- Configure the LAN Ip interface with your ISP gateway IP and the mask (both provided by your ISP)
- Disable NAT.
- Configure your WAN IP interface with your ISP public IP and the mask.
- Add a gateway with the IP of the Linksys LAN interface.
And enjoy, in my case after that, I had to reset the device to establish the connection.
