Re: Statics IPs
OP, you don't have to fill in any IP address in the PPPoE setup. If so, your ISP would tell you. This has nothing to do with the block of public IPs you were assigned.
You have 2 ways to use the public IPs:
- as secondary addresses on your WAN port
- as VIPs, that is, using destination NAT
The first way does not apply if you use PPPoE because then the primary address is assigned dynamically. You will have a hard time to put in the other addresses then.
VIPs actually do something right after creation (that is, even WITHOUT using them in a policy): they respond to arp, they are 'seen' on the WAN port. But, to actually make use of them, you need to use them as the destination address in an inbound policy, as @boneyard has already explained.
