Subnetmask problem with pppoe
Our provider give us a mask /29 = 255.255.255.248 (several static ip adresses on a adsl)
but if i establish a connection the mask is 255.255.255.255
how can i fix the problem?
where is the configuration file for pppoe?
using now 1.0beta2 (beta1 same prob)
What is the IP you get assigned to the interface at dialin? Is that IP part of the /29 subnet you got? I guess they just route the /29 over to you additionally to your real pppoe IP they assign you. In that case you just could add a public subnet for this /29 at one of your internal interfaces or add virtual IPs and NAT them to the appropriate internal machines.
The first adress will be assigned to the wan interface by pppoe dialin. It
is the one and only ip block that i have.
After then i want to bridge opt1 to wan and connect the machines with real static ip´s.
I dont want to take the machines i a local/dmz net and forward it 1:1 (full featured nat)
Today there is a problem with the subnetmask that is set to 255.255.255.255
If it is that way your provider is probably assigning a wrong subnetmask.
do you mean if the interface "says" 255.255.255.255 then it comes wrong from provider
and it not a error in the pfsense configuration template?
are there a way to set pppoe with static ipadress / subnetmask?
pppoe is similiar to dhcp. these values should be assigned by your provider. however I don't have a setup similiar to yours. I would suggest giving your provider a ring and ask them how it is supposed to be set up.
Now my Provider has confirmed that the subnetmask of 255.255.255.248 was and will
correct assigned by the dialin router/server on provider side.
Meanwhile my pfsense works with the mask 255.255.255.255 correct - mean
the public ips on the bridged interface are working.
