My ISP had given me a /30 network. Later, when I wanted more public ips, I requested for a /29 network. I was told to keep using my earlier /30 network on the interface which is facing ISP, and the newly given /29 network should be used on the other interface which connects to my NAT router and servers.
This is what I got from the isp:
WAN IP: 179.xxx.4.128/30 CUSTOMER IP : 179.xxx.4.130 ISP GATEWAY IP:179.xxx.4.129 SUBNET : 255.255.255.252 LAN IPS: 179.xxx.139.224/29 GATEWAY IP :179.xxx.139.225 SUBNET : 255.255.255.248
I have a Ubuntu pc which has two interfaces. So I am planning to do the following:
eth0 will be given 179.xxx.4.130/30 gateway 179.xxx.4.129 eth1 will be given 179.xxx.139.225/29
And I will have the following in the
These will be iptables rules:
iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o eth1 -j ACCEPT iptables -A FORWARD -i eth1 -o eth0 -j ACCEPT
My clients which have the ips
179.xxx.139.227/29 will be made to use
179.xxx.139.225/29 as gateway.
Will this configuration work for me? Any comments? If it works, what iptables rules can I use to have a bit of security?
P.S. Both networks are non-private and there is no NATing.
