Hi,

This is really cool - exactly what I was looking to do (though with not so many WRT's!) - thank you for posting the config files and diagram.

I have a question though....

If you look at the config file - http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/redhat/vl ... rk.cfg.txt and the diagram, you seem to be using the "eprt"'s in the config rather than the "iprt"'s.

Should the openwrt config not use the iprt?

Thanks,

Ian

It depends on which router you are referring to. For whatever reason on some WRTs the internal and external ports are mapped in the same order:

and on other WRTs they are mapped in reverse order:

Hi,

Oh - that's odd!

Do you still have that setup then?

What was your reason for using all the WRT's and not fewer, bigger, managed switches? - just because you had them around?

Thanks,

Ian

Bigger managed switches are more expensive and they are usually loud, and they don't run Linux of course (well most don't). I don't need 24 ports in one location, I need a few ports in several locations, and the WIFI range can be extended. For me these WRTs are the most appropriate for the job. They are also useful for much more than just switching. Since they run Linux the possibilities of what you can do with these things are enormous.

Good points!

Do you still run the same setup?

It's roughly the same. Also running 6in4 IPv6 tunnels from Hurricane Electric on the WRT running my Shorewall firewall.

Interesting! - have you written about / documented that anywhere?

Thanks,
