We just got a new Internet fiber service. Our ISP gave us a /30 for WAN and /29 for LAN? I have never seen this when setting up a new ISP service. I was always given a block of ip addresses (if needed) in the same range. So the WAN address gateway that was given is assigned to the router from the ISP. So if I setup our FW to use that usable /30 address (with the gateway their equipment), I can get on the Internet.
However, I am not sure how to setup the /29 they gave us? We requested 5 IP's for web servers / VPN server / other server.
Does this require us to get a router? We typically use our FW (CISCO PIX 515) and the router that the ISP provided as the route outside. However, the /30 and the /29 are different addresses.
Is this now the norm?
