Hi I spoke to our ISP today. I asked them if they can set one of my ips as the main ip that will be assigned every time I dail in and they told me no they can't do it because of some security thing on there side :-S Basicaly how they explained it to me is because I have 5 ips, when we dail in we get assigned a dynamic ip and on top of that I have to manually set the 5 ips to what ever services I would like them to be used for. If I want my WAN2 connection to use one of the 5 ips I have to manually set it so that all my out going connections will be using that ip. For this reason I have changed my WAN2 settings to this in the config file. set ipcp ranges my-first-static-ip/32 isp-gateway/32 I know you said its not recommended, but I need to use this ip and my isp can't set that for me. Also once I have a use for the other ips, how can I add them? Can I create ip aliases for ng1 in the same way I will normally do by adding them to my rc.conf file? Thanks for all the help Reinhold _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
