Hello,
First let me apologize for posting about a GUI topic on here. There’s a reason why I did that, and it’s because the underlying concept of this is connected to Asterisk.Here’s my situation:
Twenty wifi clients connecting to our wireless router (Cisco Linksys E4200 loaded with Tomato). All these WiFi clients are running eyeBeam (in case you’re wondering where the calls come and go from). We’re getting a SIP Trunk from a local provider that is poised for 30 lines (ISDN 30) – and don’t ask me why, the only way I can configure our FreePBX to connect to them as a trunk is via an IP-VPN provided by them.
Anyway, the server is connected by ethernet to our router and has an IP 192.168.1.252 and the other local clients are on 192.168.1.*Problem is I don’t know how I can keep the PBX on this subnet, and also connect it via eth to the other vpn modem and give it another IP which is on a 192.168.200.* subnet.
Any pointers?Thanks!

  • Either give it a 2nd address on the nic that can access the VPN modem

    You can have lots of addresses on a nic to access different sinners on the LAN

    Or just make sure the gateway knows to route the ipvpn traffic via the vpn modem

    Cheers Duncan
