Basic New Setup IP Question
I am adding a new IP range to our WAN1 port and came across a weird issue/confusion on how the fgt is defining these fields in the GUI. I am probably overthinking it, but are we supposed to put in the full Assigned LAN Netblock
address with /28 the IP assigns me in the fgt Network/Interfaces/edit WAN1 "IP/Netmask" field, or just the first LAN Usable IP
(126.96.36.199/255.255.255.240 - or 255.255.255.255)?
Same goes for my static routes. The ISP gave me a Default Gateway for LAN Netblock
to use - that should be my static route, correct? 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 as the IP/Mask and 188.8.131.52 for the Gateway under Router/Static/Static Routes?
Example of what we were provided, including explanation from ISP:Assigned LAN Netblock
- 184.108.40.206/28Subnet Mask:
255.255.255.240LAN Usable IPs
: 220.127.116.11 through 18.104.22.168
*You mas assign these IPs to your LAN (LAN Default Gateway, PC, Workstation, Firewall, etc)Default Gateway for LAN Netblock
*This will be the IP that all devices use as a default route or gateway for your LAN back to your router.
Config is ISP > 100Mbit managed Adtran router in bridged mode > WAN1 of FGT > flat HP network switch. No VLANs or anything.
