Our ISP turned up our T1 today. For whatever reason I told them that I would provide the router and configure it myself. Now that I have been staring at this all day I realize I have no clue where to start. Here is what I have: (IPs have been changed for security)
Qwest serial = 10.100.100.57/30
my serial = 10.100.100.58/30
usable IP block: 10.10.10.224/29
dns = 126.96.36.199
eth 1private lan = 192.168.1.254/24
I configured Serial0 with 10.100.100.58 and setup NAT to my private LAN and that all worked great. But what I am needing to do is place 2 pieces of hardware on the public LAN using the 10.10.10.xxx address assigned to me. I cannot get these machines to do anything on ther Internet. I have bridged the ser0 and eth0, I have tried routing, i have sat and stared. I'm at a loss. Any help will be appreciated.
This link should help you understand extended ping and how to use it:
If you can not ping the Ethernet 0 interface from an external network there is reason to believe that you have found at least part of the problem. Check with the provider and verify that you have the address and mask correct and that they have routes in their network to your router for that subnet.
