Route all Static IPs via one connection?



I'm sure this has been asked but can't seem to find an exact answer and I'm thinking the 2wire 2701HGV-C doesn't support it.


Our setup is the BT 2wire for connecting to the DSL and then a Watchguard XTM device behind as the firewall, we have 5 static IP addresses and what I want to be able to do is have just one external connection from the watchguard to the 2wire and route all the IP addresses via this.


I can setup the multiple IP's on the Watchguard for a single interface but the 2wire of course if I only connect one network cable thinks it only has one connection active.


Is it possible to route all static IP's via one Ethernet connection using this router? or do we require another router?

Re: Route all Static IPs via one connection?

If you've got a Watchguard XTM, you should be able to remove the 2wire from the link and configure your XTM to connect to the internet via PPPOE. 


This link explains how to do it: -


Once you've done that, all your static IP's can be used on your XTM.


I've done a similar thing with my Juniper firewall.


Hope that helps in some way!
