LAN and wan in the same IP range, dies it work?



  • LAN and wan in the same IP range, like this:
    LAN 192.168.100.50, Wan 192.168.100.2
    I think it doesn t work and i cannot reach the lan IP interface.
    Is that a General Problem or only a routing Problem?

    General problem??  Its not a problem, its just not how it works.  Think about it for a second or 2 ;)  If you tell router hey you have the same network on 2 different interfaces connected to 2 different physical networks.  How does it know which one to use to talk to say 192.168.100.42 ??

    Why would anyone want to do such a thing in the first place?



  • Ohh…you are right. It was a stupid configuration failure deep in the night...i didnt think about it.
    Thanks  :o ;D
