It has to do with the Proxy Arp as mentioned before and was called universal client in the 2.8.x versions.

Thanks for all the info. I will try the last option. What I have configured is hotspot for all the normal clients and now I have PPPoE setup for the clients that need publicly accessable addresses.

Another Hotspot question from me.

I am not going to use the MT boxes as wireless AP's, but impliment them in my current network. So, the question is, what does everyone prefer to control thier client connections? Hotspot, PPPoE, PPtP, or whatever else? Which one has the most flexibility.

Forget what you see on whatismyip.com etc. Try accessing from some other network I am sure it will open 207.75.xx.55.... Right, it does work that way. BUT, what I am needing is for a maching to be able to be accessed from the internet with a public IP. This is working. Also, the parent company want...

Just remove add address=207.75.xx.55/26 network=207.75.xx.0 broadcast=207.75.xx.63 interface=internet comment="Public for Goomba" disabled=no Try and let us know what happened ;) Cheers... Don...

I tried moving the rule to the top and no good. Also tried disableing all the other src-nat rules. The only one running is the one I need. Still no good.

I think I will stop the the day. My desk is taking quite a beating from my head.

it shouldn't... have your client reboot his CPE device and then try going to Http://www.whatismyip.com Also make sure you clear the cache on the browser... Well, right now the client is me and the cpe is my laptop sitting next to me. I did reboot it, made sure the connection was cleared in MT and r...

yup, it looks good, but it is still reporting the primary interface, the .60.
If my client needs to have a public that works both ways for remote access to his local server and use the same ip to connect to a remote server it is not working as needed.

Edit: the src-nat is not doing its job.

Update: I can ping my public nated pc from outside the MT. This is good - remote access is possible But, when I get a report of the IP that I am using, it is still showing 207.75.xx.60 and not 207.75.xx.55. the 55 is the one I am nating thru. If I look at the nat rules. my src nat is showing no pack...

Right, the pc still has the private ip, but when I do to a page that will show me what the world sees, my IP is that of the MT router interface. Not the one that I am trying to nat thru. The pages that I am using to lookup my IP are http://www.ipchicken.com and iceman.30below.com. Do I need to add t...

Hotspot static IP addresss

I must have missed something. I am able to pass the address from radius to MT and MT shows the address bound to the mac. But the end user address never changes on the pc and can not surf. What could have i missed? Is there a doc somewhere that helps with running a DHCP pool and being able to assign ...

Well lets see, this is a tough one. My suggestion is to look at bridging the two interfaces and maybe useing PPPoE to hand out some static publis addresses. It might work, but I am new to PPPoE. Can anyone tell either of us what the pros/cons of a PPPoE session are as compared to PPP. Newb question:...
