Ok... I've just installed and setup smoothwall 2.0 express today as my router. I've successfully got it connecting to my ISP with PPPoE but I'm having issues with certain things.
For instance, I can't access my hotmail, I can login at the hotmail page but after hitting enter and trying 2 get in2 my account.. it hangs.
Secondly, MSN display pics don't appear... also I am unable to upload anything. Ie.. FTP, I can browse FTP files but not upload any new files.
Any ideas as to how to solve this? I imagine its something to do with port-forward or a dmz-pinhole issue? How is using a dmz pinhole different to using typical port-forwarding?
I tried re-installing smoothwall with other settings, changed the setup of the RED interface, still no luck resolving these issues.
Quite simply.. I have turned my Netgear DG814 into a modem (stuck it in bridge mode) it connects to my ISP with PPPoA. What's annoying is that I have to enter my ISP username and password from the smoothwall box, no option to do so on the DG814.
So in Smoothwall setup...
should I set the Red Interface to have a Static address, use DHCP or use PPPoE. Problems before were that if i chose DHCP there wouldn't be a PPPoE option in the smoothwall drop down menu in "ppp settings". Just "com1, com2" and so on.
I have been using PPPoE on the smoothwall box, its been successfully logging into plus.net but again its causing these issues of being able to upload as well as access my hotmail.
It appears to be an addressing issue, but then again it could be anything.
