I have a R86s G1. It has 3 I225-V ports and 2 Mellanox X3 ports. I want to connect the R86s via one of the I225-V ports directly to the fiber ONT (Deutsche Telekomm). According to the ISP I have to use PPPOE with Vlan Tag 7. Further want to connect one of the Mellanox ports to a Zyxel XGS1250-12 on the first floor and the other one to another Zyxel XGS1250-12 on the second floor. Over the two remaining I225-V ports I would like to connect two wifi asscesspoints.
Now I tried to install IPFire on the R86s, but I have problems to get it running correctly. The two Zyxel XGS1250-12 and the two WiFi asscesspoints can be quiet in the same network so I thought of a simple red and green configuration would be good to go. What surprised me here is that I can only assign one nic to green and one to red. Is that correct? Nevertheless I assign a I225-V to red and a Mellanox X3 to green. Then I followed the WIKI and chose PPPOE.
But now it seems that no DHCP server is started. “statring DHCP Server” shows fail and I get the message: “chmod:cannot access ’ /var/run/dhcp.pid’ : no such file or directory”
I assume I did something wrong with the configuration. Do you have any idea where I can start looking for the error?
BTW: I have no IT background, I thought it would be a good idea to learn something new with the R86s. So I hope for your patience .
