Latency is exceptional too, as traversal of the firewall adds only ~0.08ms on average, even on a low-power Atom CPU that’s now several generations old.Vy OS (and Linux’s firewall connection tracking facility in general) is also much more efficient in terms of memory consumption.I used the guide here to bridge both virtual routers together, so that communication could be established. I configured the Fast Ethernet interface and enabled OSPF on it: R1#(config)interface Fa0/0 R1#(config-int)ip addr 172.16.0.1 255.255.255.0 R1#(config-int)no shut R1#(config-int)exit R1#(config)router ospf 1 R1#(config-router)router-id 126.96.36.199 R1#(config-router)network 172.16.0.1 0.0.0.0 area 0 [email protected]:~$ configure [email protected]# set interfaces ethernet eth0 address 172.16.0.2/24 [email protected]# set interfaces ethernet eth1 address 192.168.0.1/24 [email protected]# set interfaces ethernet eth2 address 192.168.1.1/24 [email protected]# set interfaces ethernet eth3 address 192.168.2.1/24 [email protected]# set interfaces ethernet eth4 address 192.168.3.1/24 [email protected]# set protocols ospf area 0 network 172.16.0.0/24 [email protected]# set protocols ospf area 10 network 192.168.0.0/24 [email protected]# set protocols ospf area 10 network 192.168.1.0/24 [email protected]# set protocols ospf area 10 network 192.168.2.0/24 [email protected]# set protocols ospf area 10 network 192.168.3.0/24 I want to mention that I created the four ethernet interfaces in the 192.168 networks so that I could demonstrate inter-area route summarization from the Vyatta router.To summarize these four networks in area 10 so that area 0 would only see one route, I entered the following: According to that output, the Vyatta router had established a neighbor relationship with R1, and that R1 was acting as the backup designated router for the network, which means the Vyatta router was the DR proper.: [email protected] Router:/etc$ more hosts127.0.0.1 localhost# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopbackfe00::0 ip6-localnetff00::0 ip6-mcastprefixff02::1 ip6-allnodesff02::2 ip6-allrouters127.0.1.1 Edge Router #vyatta entry172.16.0.20 ds1511 #vyatta entry172.16.0.20 laibalion.#vyatta entry172.16.0.85 Vangrieken #on-dhcp-event :bd:7e:74:5c172.16.0.86 PC_van_Jos #on-dhcp-event :5e:5c:24:b9172.16.0.87 Android_355067040082356 #on-dhcp-event 7c::a7:bc:94172.16.0.88 i Phonevan Jannes #on-dhcp-event :6e:c9:b172.16.0.78 android-89ba5dee3df63abe #on-dhcp-event :70:6e:55172.16.0.51 Surface-Geert #on-dhcp-event :bd:67:a:6172.16.0.89 android-ea1f87e87ffd8dda #on-dhcp-event c:96:bf:e1:cd:81172.16.0.84 android-5a651c5cb43957cf #on-dhcp-event c:8f:a:bc172.16.0.71 DUNE #on-dhcp-event :e8:7d:2d:75172.16.0.68 PC-EVI #on-dhcp-event :64:3a:8f172.16.0.76 Surface-Evi #on-dhcp-event 50:1a:c5:e:cf:2172.16.0.77 Brother_MFC-J6510W #on-dhcp-event 30:5:5c:b:f3:a7172.16.0.53 Lumia-920-Geert #on-dhcp-event a:a:c4172.16.0.62 Geert-Desktop #on-dhcp-event 90:2b::c0172.16.0.80 Unifi-AP-LR #on-dhcp-event 24:a4:3c::eb : [email protected] Router:/etc$ show dhcp leases IP address Hardware Address Lease expiration Pool Client Name---------- ---------------- ---------------- ---- -----------172.16.0.53 a:a:c4 2014/08/19 Edge Router-DHCP Lumia-920-Geert172.16.0.61 74:e:d3:4d:68 2014/08/18 Edge Router-DHCP Geert-Desktop172.16.0.68 :64:3a:8f 2014/08/19 Edge Router-DHCP PC-EVI172.16.0.71 :e8:7d:2d:75 2014/08/18 Edge Router-DHCP DUNE172.16.0.76 50:1a:c5:0e:cf:02 2014/08/19 Edge Router-DHCP Surface-Evi [email protected] Router# show service dhcp-server disabled false hostfile-update enable shared-network-name Edge Router-DHCP As you can see, there a bunch of #on-dhcp-event entries present that are no longer valid. Where the Edge Router Pro's default blacklist categories and urls are coming from? Can we use an online blacklist rather than default with it's url?
After reviewing the routing table on the Vyatta router, we can see that the 0.0.0.0 route has made it across the network, and that all traffic that matches this route should get sent to R1. Matt Oswalt is an all-around technology nerd, currently focusing on networking, software development, and everything in between.I’m using WAN load balancing for all outbound connections across two distinct and asymmetric Internet providers.I never had any problems with WLB in pf Sense, and it works just as well in Vy OS.Since we had a valid neighbor relationship, I wanted to see if my summarization configuration worked: R1#show ip route 192.168.0.0 Routing entry for 192.168.0.0/22, supernet Known via "ospf 1", distance 110, metric 20, type inter area Last update from 172.16.0.2 on Fast Ethernet0/0, ago Routing Descriptor Blocks: * 172.16.0.2, from 188.8.131.52, ago, via Fast Ethernet0/0 Route metric is 20, traffic share count is 1 The routing table lists it as a supernet, a.k.a.a summary route, it is an inter-area route, which is true because the networks are in area 10, and the correct mask is being used, encompassing all our subnets, but no more. The last thing I wanted to do is practice passing a default route from the Cisco router to the Vyatta router.
