I tried to setup the 675 in routing mode with DHCP, i.e. I wanted it
to have the static IP address assigned by my ISP, and assign 10.0.0.2 to
my computer, and then have the 675 use NAT to route the traffic from my
computer to the outside world.
I was able to get the DHCP part to work, and I could access the 675
via its web server on http://10.0.0.1, but I could not get in touch
with the outside world from the 675 after the config steps below. Neither
ping nor traceroute showed any signs of life.
Since my ISP uses RFC1483 bridging instead of PPP, I ran
'set rfc1483 enable' to enable 1483 routing (not bridging) instead of
PPP. Then I ran
'set nat enable'
'set interface wan0-0 dest my_ip_address (x.y.z.36)'
'set interface wan0-0 mask my_netmask' before 'write' and 'reboot'.
(I don't really know what RFC1483 routing means -- I guess I'll be
doing some searching for that information)
The various 'show interface' commands now seemed to indicate that the
interfaces were in place and running, including wan0 and wan0-0. However,
'show route' did not show any gateway from the 675 to the outside world.
I tried to 'set route add ip 0.0.0.0 gw x.y.z.1', but could not get it to
accept this or any other 'set route add ip x.y.z.z gw x.y.z.1'
commands. It would always complain about "Error: check your input". Yes,
I did use the proper numbers instead of 'x.y.z'...
I should probably read up on TCP/IP configuration, but I am not sure
if I'll find out about the bridging/routing issues there. Maybe what I
am trying to achieve is simply not possible when my ISP uses the
bridging configuration. With more than one computer, I guess I would then
have to get more static IP addresses.
