I've got a little stuck configuring my public IP block. My ISP gives me an IP E.G 188.8.131.52 and then a 'block' of 8 IP addresses, E.G 184.108.40.206/29.
It's my understanding you can assign one IP to a LAN interface, assign the remainder of the block to clients, and that should work fine.
Below is a diagram to clarify things.
Currently my setup is basically-
/ ip address add address=220.127.116.11/29 interface=VLAN900-GUEST network=18.104.22.168
/ ip route add dst-address=22.214.171.124/29 gateway=VLAN900-GUEST
A client is then setup as 126.96.36.199. I am unable to ping 188.8.131.52 with the above config, as it's being sent out via the default route
HOWEVER the below works-
/ ip address add address=184.108.40.206/24 interface=VLAN900-GUEST network=220.127.116.11
/ ip route add dst-address=18.104.22.168/24 gateway=VLAN900-GUEST
I appreciate /24 is the wrong way to do it.
Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Additionally, possibly a stupid question, what subnet mask should the clients use?
