Smoothwall 3


Hi all very new here so sorry if this is not clear. Has anyone here ever setup smoothwall with more than two nic cards in it. I have my red and Green working fine just cant get the other two to do anything.

My router supplies me with a 192.168.1 address
my red card is 192.168.2.
and my green card is 192.168.3
This all works fine.
I have two other cards installed in the machine with IP addresses
Orange 192.168.5
and my Purple is 192.168.4.
now my purple does give out addresses in that range, but I cant connect to the internet I cant ping via IP or name.
I must be missing something very stupid. Any help would be great.

Thanks

Thanks for the help

What are you connecting to the other two nic's?

The red is the WAN or internet side.
The green is for the LAN or internal network.
The orange is for a DMZ zone.
And the Purple is for a wireless router.

Hi Mrrangerman
Yes my Wan is connected to the Red
my local network is connected to the green
I have nothing connected to either the orange or purple as yet
but I was testing the Purple to see if I could get out to the internet, and it does give me an ip in the correct range ie 192.168.4 but I cant connect to the internet from this nic. now I know this connection will be used for my wifi router, but I just did a test and connected a pc to it to see if I was getting out. is this ok
