Hi everyone, I’m new so I apologize in advance if any concept of how IPFire works is not clear to me
I have a complex home network, with a router (192.168.x.1) and a managed switch (192.168.x.4) that serves a dozen VLANs, in cascade I have a PoE switch (192.168.x.6) that powers the my 5 access points which provide connectivity to various home devices (smartphones, surveillance cameras, switches, computers, alexa, refrigerator, printer, guests, etc.)
The dns then is managed in a “particular” way: there is a microsoft dns (with relative active directory) used for the pc and the printer, and a PI-Hole to which all the DNS queries for the other devices are addressed ( also the microsoft dns forwards the dns requests to PI-Hole). Inside the aforementioned domain controller there is also a dhcp that supplies the ip addresses to the 10 VLANs described above.
what kind of configuration should i set on IPFire? I expect a RED network which is the one that goes from IPFire to the router, and a GREEN network to which all the VLANs are connected, correct?
So I suppose that on the router I have to indicate the IPFire address as next-hop and
on the managed switch I have to put 0.0.0.0 gw IPFire-GREEN. Right?
But, since IPFire is a virtual machine on the Management VLAN, how can I set up the routing? I tried to add a static route on IPFire
192.168.xx.0 / 24 via 192.168.X.4 dev green0 proto static
but trying to ping a machine on that network I get no response
