PostPosted: Mon Mar 15, 2004 11:20 am    Post subject: new user, some network/port issues Reply with quote Back to top

I've searched the forums and I've found answers to most of my questions, but wanted some feedback.

I have an existing network that looks like this:
CableModem --> Linksys Wireless Router --> Internal 192.168.1 network

I have the Motorola ATA. I put the ATA in front of the router as suggested by Vonage docs, because otherwise you would lose the QoS stuff. OK, fine.

Lose the ability to have incoming connections (such as ssh). Log into 192.168.102.1, figure out that I need to allow port forwarding for 192.168.102.100 which is now my Linksys router. That works.

The only real issue I have is that I can only forward around 6-7 ports with the Motorola and I need more than that. I tried turning off the port forwarding/DHCP and letting the Linksys filter traffic as it did before, but that only causes my inside network to no longer be able to get out.

Thoughts, suggestions? Thanks.

I for one didn't like the idea of my ATA being hung out in front of my network for all to have access to. I don't care that the ports are stealth-ed I just didn't like. I have a router for a reason so I can control where and how my data is partitioned. I'd put the ATA behind the router.. this way you have complete control over your data.

QOS doesn't seem to be that big of a deal if you have a good enough connection. My sound quality crystal clear and those that I've told that I'm talking to them over Voip are amazed at the quality and have mentioned that it sounds like were in the next room to each other.

Thanks, I think I might just do that as well.
I've also read that the ATA is subject to denial of service attacks if it's hanging out there naked, so that's another reason to move it inside.

I've got it all running again and no problems, just one concern.
I moved the TA to the inside, then could not connect to it since it was on the 192.168.102 net and my inside is 192.168.1. So, I hooked up another PC to it, and let the Motorola assign it a 192.168.102.100 address. Fine.
I turned off the dhcp/nat on the motorola and also assigned it a static IP of 192.168.1.20. Reset, everything is fine.

Except... I can't connect to the Motorola using a browser on 192.168.1.20.
I also can't ping that IP on the inside.

Should I leave dhcp up on it and connect a PC when I need access as I did? This is kind of weird.

I asked Vonage this question. Also, since I disabled the dhcp server on the Motorola, I cannot get back in by just plugging in a PC.

Vonage replied that I need to assign my PC a static IP on the 192.168.102.x network with a default route of 192.168.102.1 and I will be able to get in, but it seems that there is no other way to get a web connection besides the 192.168.102.1 interface.

I dont think I'll often need to access that device so this works OK for me, I will likely reenable DHCP on the Motorola though. If I have a spare NIC around, I might add another interface to my server which sits near the motorola device, and use that to connect to it.

Sure. The Motorola thinks it is 192.168.102.1.
So, connect a straight patch cable between the PC port and your PC's ethernet port.

Configure your PC to have a static IP (this depends on the OS but for windows xp, right click on My network Places, then go to properties for the TCP/IP connection). Assign any IP on that network such as 192.168.102.100, with netmask 255.255.255.0 and default route of 192.168.102.1.

That should be it.

General tab, scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP ). If you examine the settings, they are probably set to use DHCP right now.
