    Default 6.1 Fresh Install - connectivity

    I posted this in a different link but someone didn't want me around...

    I installed 6.1 on a Sun x4100 so the system requirements are well met. I've checked and double checked to make sure the external and internal ports are identified correctly. I have only the web filter currently loaded but turned off.

    The problem is from my clients on my home network I can not access the internet. UT is in bridge mode between my cable modem and dd-wrt box. I can access the UT box from internal and from the UT box I can access the web. I had a diff box that i configured and worked but the PS went out and I had an extra x4100 box.

    I'm sure it's something simple but what....?

    Thanks!

    Yeah your configuration is bass akwards...

    Cable Modem (bridge) -> UT (Bridge) -> DD-WRT (Router) = WRONG, unless you have two public IP's to expend. My guess is your DD-WRT isn't getting an address from your ISP.

    Two correct layouts...

    Cable Modem (bridge) -> DD-WRT (router) -> UT (bridge) -> lan switch

    or

    Cable Modem (bridge) -> UT (Router) -> lan switch <- DD-WRT lan

    Pick one... you're fundamentally configured wrong to function.

    My DD-WRT is WAP. So in the first option you have I wouldn't be filtering anything. My wireless connection would by pass UT.

    It worked in that configuration with 6.02.

    So you have a bridging cable modem connected to a bridging UT connected to a bridging dd-wrt? You have to have a router somewhere... you'd have to be on all internet IP addresses.

    Is your cable modem a NAT device?

    I have a similar problem, except slightly different.

    I have multiple public IP addresses available.
    Cable modem (Bridged) -> UT (Public IP/Bridge) -> Belkin Router (Router)

    The ut machine by itself has no problem getting on the internet. But when I connect the Router, I lose connectivity from the computers 'behind' it. Any ideas?

    no - no.

    Original and current working config

    Std. Motorola Cable modem ->Linksys (wrt54g running DD-WRT) -> Clients

    UT configuration. (worked for about a month with 6.02 until the upgrade)

    Cable Modem -> UT (ISP assigned IP address on the br connection) -> Linksys -> Clients

    Was there a change to the default configuration in 6.1 that doesn't let the linksys box DHCP a IP number from the ISP?

    No, your ISP shouldn't be allowing more than one DHCP lease per connection. I haven't found a single ISP that does. More than likely the upgrade just catalyzed them fixing their connection.

    Turn UT into a router, and switch the linksys into WAP mode on the same switch as the clients. You'll only need 1 IP then, and your reports will actually work.

    I'll give that a wur'l - I was just being lazy.
