    Default First install of Untangle - beginner!

    HI all,

    I have installed the latest release of Untangle on a P4 PC, two network cards both cabled into my Lan.

    My Router: 192.168.2.254


    On the untangle box I have set static addresses:

    Internal: 192.168.2.101
    External: 192.168.2.100
    DNS: 192.168.2.254

    On my router I input into the DMZ - the 192.168.2.101ip address


    I have downloaded content filtering, but can't get it to filter anything. Ticked most of the boxes in the catergories section and inputted websites.

    I am pretty sure the configuration is wrong, any suggestins/help?

    Many thanks

    untangle has to have the WAN plugged into the router's LAN side and the LAN plugged into either your PC or a switch if you have one.

    generally your setup should look like this (assuming you have untangle setup in bridge mode)

    (internet) - (modem) - (router) - (untangle) - (switch) - (protected computers)

    This is how I have got it.

    Internet>Modem>Router(>

    The Untangle is plugged into 2 ports on the Router, the other 2 ports are occupied by 2 PCs? This ok?

    I have put the internal ip address 192.168.2.101 into the DMZ. This correct?

    No

    The layout of orange is the correct
    Untangle MUST be to stay between your router and your lan

    might i add that you cannot have your internal and external on the same subnet....otherwise you will find out what a broadcast storm feels like

    cheers and good luck. 8)

    It sounds like you have UT in router mode as well, in addition to the layout being like Orange drew it, you also want to change UT to bridge mode (only 1 ip required then).

    With your current setup you are doing NAT on your router, then sending your LAN traffic to UT and trying to tell UT to NAT it again, on the same subnet.....
