I have a repeater attached to Blue Wlan of Ipfire (with Proxy running). Prior to that i used Macfilter to give my clients access to Blue. To get access to internet for my clients this topc helped me:
Client on a WLAN Repeater did not get a internet connection
a) solution in the topic helped, but i dont understand why? Is Mac filtering now senseless/obsolete?
b) are several Accesspoints attached via LAN to Blue the better solution?
c) when i installed the repeater, i turned off the use of Proxy in my client, to reduce complex errors. In this case my client do not have access to RED nor to Blue, but DHCP gives the IP. If i turn on the proxy in my client, access to Blue and to Red is possible. Access to Firewall i allowed only to the DNS Server of Ipfire. Why my client on Blue can access the Proxy on Blue, when i allowed only access to DNS on Blue? I have seen in the proxy page of ipfire the “allowed subnets”, but is there a hierarchy between Proxy rules and Firewall rules?
d) when i use the proxyserver of ipfire, the client using the proxy goes to red, or only the proxy of Ipfire connect to red for the Ipfire Firewall?
