Hi, I’m having some issues, this is how my setup is:
Green: (proxy server/network)
I can’t seem to get Internet on Green. Green however is a PC/Proxy Server for all the users in the network with static IP addresses and rules/filters and proxy port for Internet. I’m not sure if this matters.
However if I connect my laptop to the same port (Green) I can access the Web UI, but not from a pc that’s connected under the proxy server.
I hope that anyone can help me and that my explanation is clear.
IPFire is a firewall, which connects local network(s) to the WAN ( see wiki.ipfire.org - What is IPFire? ).
To achieve this, all networks handled must be disjunct. This is the routing functionality in IPFire.
Your setup puts all networks into 192.168.1.0/24. So you logically have three devices in this net in your IPFire system. How should the routing decisions be made?
All 3 Networks are the same 192.168.1.*
Typically Red uses DHCP from your provider or other router.
So You could set GREEN as 192.168.10.* the network card you will
typically set to 192.168.10.1… In this example.
in a 255.255.255.0 subnet they will not overlap.
Would recommend not using 192.168.1.*
if you are behind another ISP or Store router or plan to use IPsec.
Thanks again for the clear explanation it helped a lot, I now have Internet on the proxy server on green, not on the clients/users connected to the proxy server for some reason but I don’t think it has to do with IP fire?
