    Smoothwall Weirdness

    OK we have just redesigned our network (one Subent, VLAN and Domain)

    Have reconfigured our Smoothie box to match the new settings :

    Hostname, Internal IP, External IP, DNS,e tc

    However..

    I cannot contact the Smoothie box from another PC and the Smoothie Box cannot see any other PC on the network:

    All I am getting is Destination Host Unreachable

    Initial config:

    Hostname: Proxy
    Int IP: 192.168.200.7
    Ext. IP: 192.168.200.8

    Current Config:

    as above but no Ext Interface..

    Both do same thing.

    Cant get to the Web Interface to backup my settings so I can try a rebuild

    Was the external interface just not plugged in or actually changed to something else? It's not going to know which interface to route traffic back to if int/ext are on the same subnet.

    Ext was plugged in..

    How can I get smoothwall to work on a single subnet?

    Hi gatt, just left the office for the day, as tom may have too. Give me a call in the morning if you're free and we'll try and work out what's going on. 0870 1 999 500 opt 1.

    Thanks!

    Rob.

    Fixed!!

    Lokos like a corrupt routing table - was showing 3 default gateways on same NIC
    ran the routef command which sorted it

    Argh!!

    Just rebooted after installing some updates and the routing table is back to what it was
    running routef resolves it again - but get strong feeling its only a temp fix

    ANyone know how to safely rebuild the routing tables?

    Sorry Gatt, I have been out of the office all day and am now in a travel inn near soton airport, contending with nasty 115kbps bluetooth modem, since somebody has no ADSL in his flat and has borrowed the voda dongle.... speaking of RobF, he's been training folk all day (and will be tomorrow too), so you may be as well giving the tech support chaps a ring. Normal service will resume shortly
