Hey all,
I have been having some problems when installing SW. My main network is
192.168.0.x, so I made smoothie 192.168.0.1 on the Green interface. A
few questions. Is it possible for my adsl router to connect to the red
interface with an ip of 192.168.0.254? Or will I have to make it
192.168.1.1, and SW red interface as 192.168.1.1

Also, once I have done this, should all traffic be routed thru to the
net properly? Thanks in advance!

No. All subnets on all interfaces need to be distinct,
non-overlapping...

Not quite either. If the routers LAN side IP address is 192.168.1.1,
then the Smoothwall's RED IP address need to of course different,
though within the same subnet. Assuming the subnet mask used by the
router is a /24 (255.255.255.0), this means you can use any IP address
in teh range 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.254, with 192.168.1.1 being the
gateway for Smoothwall's RED interface...

Of course! Wink

The better option would be to put the modem/router into bridge mode
and thereby to eliminate the double NAT setup...

Btw., you will get faster and easier answers when you visit
