I have a new client that has Comcast business 20 MB ISP service. They currently have a Netgear FVS328 firewall with a static ip address and a subnet of 255.255.255.248/29 - so I "assume" there are several spare IP addresses.
After hours, I disconnected the existing firewall patch cable (to the comCast box) and installed it on the new untangle server to the external network card. During setup - Untangle recognizes the external network card as connected.
When I enter the static ip address, subnet, gateway, DNS1, DNS2 and press Test Connectivity - the response is "test failed" - and makes me re-enter the data.
Note that the existing firewall is isolated (unplugged from the both sides of the network). Each time I enter the data for the external network, I get the same response.
Has anyone connected an Untangle Firewall to Comcast Business service? Any tips on getting Untangle to pass the test and accept the WAN settings?
I can reconnect the old firewall and all is well. The only thing I notices on the netgear firewall was 3 port forwards for smtp, https and pptp - all forwarded to the server x.x.x.100. To me, nothing there that should stop the install of Untangle.
The settings on the Netgear FVS328 show:
Internet connection - Broadband - No Login
NAT - Enabled
Use Static IP Address - x.x.x.229
IP Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.248
Gateway IP Address - x.x.x.230
Primary DNS - 22.214.171.124
Secondary DNS - 126.96.36.199
Router's MAC Address - Use Default Address
Internal - LAN Setup
Ip Address - 192.168.0.1
Subnet - 255.255.255.0
RIP Direction - None
Rip Version - Disabled
The only option under rules that I see (don't understand) is Enable DNS Proxy.
To me, this should be a no brainer - but apparently it is :-(
Any help/idea's would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
