I have used Freesco-027 successfully as router on our
office LAN for over a year. When Freesco-030 came
along, I quickly upgraded with ease. It was smooth and I
am pretty happy.
Recently I decided to add a second Freesco box as a
bridge between the 100-baseTX and 10-baseT subnets.
Here are my problems:
1. On the main setup menu, I can't choose the option b)
for ethernet bridge.
2. When I use the advanced setup menu to configure
the bridge (option 12) I get and ignore the warning about
unpredictable behavior ;-). Well, I want a bridge:
dedicated!!
3. Freesco insists on configuring at least one of my
NICs with static IP or DHCP, else it simply won't run. I
thought on a box serving as bridge (therefore
transparent network component) none of the two NICs
(that's all I have there!) needs an IP, right?
What am I doing wrong here? 8-(
Any help greatly appreciated!! :D
Thanks,
Gunac
