    Default Untangle VM as Re-Router

    This may have been asked several times before, but I cannot seem to locate an answer. Is it possible to run the Untangle VM in a configuration similar to the Windows version?

    Thanks!

    Does the VM in demo mode require a network outage longer than the Windows version does?

    Here is my current ROUTER/GATEWAY setup:

    D-Link DIR-655: WAN = Public IP
    LAN = 192.168.10.1 / 255.255.255.252
    DMZ=192.168.10.2

    Untangle VM Player Version: Virtual Adapeter 1 "External" = 192.168.10.2 / 30
    Gateway = 192.168.10.1
    Virtual Adapeter 2 "Internal" = 192.168.1.1 / 24
    Virtual Adapeter 3 "DMZ" = disabled

    Network systems = IPs from 192.168.1.2-254
    Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway 192.168.1.1
    DNS - local SBS2008 servers IP

    My stock DLink firmware doesn't support One-to-One NAT or bridge mode, hence the double NATing. Should work just as well in those configurations. Likely better. Double NATing can cause problems, but I've had few, none really other than some finicky VOIP stuff.

    Hi,

    I was looking at running a untangle-VM with only one physical network card in the computer, and was wondering if anyone see's any problems with the following:

    a) Run my VM Untangle machine and give it three virtual network adaptors.

    b) Configure the internal adaptor with the IP address to work in the 192.168.0.x range

    c) Configure the external adaptor with the IP address to work in the 192.168.99.x range.

    d) Leave the third virtual adaptor (for DMZ) as disconnected. (Not required).

    Effectively the internal and external network will be on the same physical network, but just with different IP addresses. I can then change the modem/gateway router to the 192.168.99.x range and simulate having two separate networks.

    Does anyone see any potential problems with this, or would I be better off to install windows XP on a virtual machine, and use the re-router technology instead?

    Cheers

    Adam.
