there is something i don’t understand: i want to replace a router with ipFire (to use a VPN later).
i started from scratch, clean ipFire, firewall settings forward allowed, outgoing allowed, no rules.
green 10.1.148.0/255.255.255.0, red via DHCP
internet works perfectly for all clients.
then i need a static route to access another network with a router and card readers (healthcare).
so static route: 10.207.0.0/16 to 10.1.148.254
i can ping the router and the card readers but no further communication possible (the router has an internal web page, no access).
same settings with a router (i tried a fritzbox): no problems.
something must be missing in ipFire settings.
