PPPoE and CIDR /29



  • Ideally what i would like to achieve is to get my extra IP's working.
    I understand there are 2 methods of going about this, one is through routing, and the other via NAT. I have tried creating ProxyARPs and using NAT but for some reason it does not seem to work. What i am trying to achieve at the moment looks somewhat similar to the diagram found here : http://doc.m0n0.ch/handbook/examples-filtered-bridge.html . However at present, the router(pfsense) box is using the /32 address by the ISP. For the setup to work, do i need to use an usable IP address from my /29 pool?

    Current SETUP:
    Lan interface: 192.168.1.1/24
    Wan: PPPoE /32 address
    OPT1: Based on Wan connection (nothing configured yet)

    Any feedback appreciated thanks.

    This is just in reference to a thread that forum user DotDash assisted somebody sometime back. (http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,5253.msg31668.html#msg31668)

    I just had a few questions following the post.

    When creating the NAT 1:1 relationship(at the NAT 1:1 creation screen), would the external IP be the proxy arp ip that was specified in the Virtual IP's? If i wanted to translate this IP to internal address 192.168.1.10, would it look like this:

    External Subnet: 123.456.453.789  (do i use /29 or /32?) Originally its /29, but since it was specified as /32 in VIP, im not sure.
    Now if the internal subnet needs to use the same subnet as the external, then what should i put in as the internal subnet? Because if i put in 192.168.1.10, wouldnt that be a /24 subnet?

    Also i wanted to ask, if this setup translates a VIP into a private /24 address in a LAN, how does this differ from directly assigning an internal computer with a /29 address?.

    I hope somebody could provide me with some light in my search for enlightenment :)
