right now my cable provider Vodafone is configured using briged mode with a Hitron cable modem. IPFire is attached to a network port located on the rear of the Hitron.
I’m planning to exchange the Hitron and use a Fritz!Box 6590/6591 instead. IPFire still should be attach to this new cable modem.
Three questions came into my mind:
will I be able to reach the new cable modem to do certain configurations like SIP settings, modifying the phone books and similar?
will IPFire still work as it is set up now or do I have to re-configure it different?
is the bridged mode of my provider still necessary or even mandatory?
