Hi all,

Anyone running untangle firewall who has successfully managed to setup wan to connect to fibre?
I have been trying for hours without success screenshots for working Configs (wan and vlan out of untangle would be very much appreciated.

Thanks
Daniel

should work fine.

 

 

 

You will want PPPoE on vlan 10 interface.

 

 

 

any username/password works i'd go for something easy like user@spark.co.nz / password (type these out dont copy and paste i suspect you may have dreaded copy paste issue)

 

 

 

ensure your configuring on the right port, don't set a service name.

The only other thing I can think of, I have untangle as a VM in hyper v and the wan is plugged into ONT but because you can’t pass through the network card into untangle.

Diagram:
ONT -HOST-Microsoft virtual switch-untangle

Do you guys think this is what’s stops it from working?

Anyone has similar setup and managed to get it working?

I assume you're not aware of how VLANs work in Hyper V? This is the important part.

 

The first thing would be to read up on that. There is no reason why it won't work with the VM doing the VLAN tagging which would be the easiest approach. if you can't do VLAN tagging with your hardware you'll need something such as a switch or Mikrotik router to strip PVID10 so it will work.

 

Seems like you're creating an awfully complex setup for yourself.

Have you got this running in your environment what i am after?

Before I go and read up on something which by the way i don’t mind, I do need to know you have managed to get the exact same setup working before. I appreciate people’s advise and opinion and some might not won’t to share their knowledge. I do however have asked in my post for instruction to achieve what I am after and not to tell me to go back to school. I hope i didn’t come across rude and it’s not my intention but we can spare comments like yours which don’t answer the question.

So back to my initial question, has someone got a similar setup and is kind enough to share how they have achieved this?

Thank you very much

@sahne - I run Untangle, have done for many years, from ADSL to fibre.  Currently I am with BigPipe, so pretty close to Spark (expect Spark do VLAN tagging, BigPipe don't).  I haven't had any problems (I have an averagely complex network running my own Exchange server, and Untangle is connected directly to the ONT).

Can you post your config details of your external interface?  Here's what mine looks like (note I am not using the BigPipe DNS, instead I use 1.1.1.1):

 



I suspect one of two problems:

1) VLAN tagging is not on, or is wrong
2) Your VM is not set up properly.

What hypervisor are you running?  I run Untangle natively on a dedicated box, just an old AMD X2, and that's more than fast enough.

I've never played with untangle but it's no different to multiple other setups I manage running RouterOS in a virtualised environment.

 

The key here is VLAN support - Spark requires VLAN10 tagging on the WAN port so running this under Hyper V either one of the above solutions - handing the tagging elsewhere before it enters the box OR VLAN support to be configured in Hyper-V and the passing VLAN10 through to the VM or tagging the VM with VLAN10 which negates the need to handle the tagging within the VM which can pose some issues.

 

There are pros and cons to each solution, and some of those pros and cons will also depend on what you're planning to use as your LAN interface - whether this be a 2nd NIC port or egressing the VM using a different VLAN.

Personally I would try and remove the HyperV portion and run Untangle natively if possible, and prove that works (which shouldn't be hard). I agree with one of the your previous comments that it seems to be a complex setup; removing one of the variables should help in getting it working.

Hi guys thanks for all the info already. :-) Will be writing a proper map tonight with screenshots on my current setup so I don’t waste anyone’s time and perhaps will help find what i misconfigured.

Hi everyone please see below my network map with current configuration perhaps someone can pinpoint what has been misconfigured.

I figured it out. OMG why didnt I think about this. While I looked at my screenshots it all came together what was configured incorrect. As soon as I have time I will provide diagram in case someone else is interested to configure the same.

See below map with screenshots to indicate what needs to be done to get it working. Hope this can assist people in future.
