I've received a /29 allocation of IPv4 addresses from my ISP. For sake of discussion, I will call this the
This IP space is divided as follows:
126.96.36.199: Network 188.8.131.52-21: Free to use 184.108.40.206: Gateway 220.127.116.11: Broadcast
My ISP uses PPPoE and DHCP, and my router, a MikroTik, automatically picked up the gateway address to use as its own. Any clients on the LAN side will appear as this address on the WAN via the magic of NAT.
Now, I have a host I want to assign the
.17 address, and have it available on that address through the WAN.
I have no idea how, exactly, to configure this on the MikroTik.
I do believe it needs configuration of some kind, since it wasn't as simple as dropping something like this
interfaces file on the host in question:
auto eth0:0 iface eth0:0 inet static address 18.104.22.168 netmask 255.255.255.248 gateway 22.214.171.124
From what I understand of basic networking, the router probably needs either a bridge or a static route of some kind set up, since right now it has no idea what to do with a packet claiming to come from
126.96.36.199 on the LAN side.
Am I on the right track here, and what do I need to be looking at in my router config?
