Typically, this IP Address is on the internal network and used for management. I usually give it an address from a management network with associated gateway to allow for access to the internet.

inside interface should be used to go into your internal network.

If you say internet to be inside, the routing is like looping around.

Give it an internal IP Address and gateway for your network. So long as this network has access to the internet you'll be fine.


IP Address /24
