I built my own gigabit router using FreeBSD on an old PowerEdge 2400 with a few gigabit cards and IPF. My bosses want a more "turnkey" solution, presumably something they can manage "if I get hit by a truck". So, I bought the RVS4000 thinking, "gigabit router, should work..". I come to find out that not only can it not handle multiple IP addresses on the WAN port, but it refuses to allow DHCP to pass through the VLANs, at least in the way I have it set up.
Can anybody give me some tips as to how to get all of my VLANs to talk to the same DHCP server? Is this thing only designed to be used by "small business owners with no IT training" and thus incapable of more advanced functions?
Nope, the option for DHCP pass through is greyed out when you specify a VLAN for an interface.
It also doesn't work experimentally, either
As far as advanced features, if you're taking requests (some of these might exist, I haven't had time to fully explore the device):
IPF-style firewall rules
More robust WAN interface
Multiple IP support
I'm using a SonicWall TZ170 for most of these features, but of course it's only 100mb so I can't use it as my internal router (wouldn't want to, anyway).
I mean, I know this is only a $100 router, and all of these features exist on the $5000+ routers Cisco sells, but dangit, I'm not gonna spend $5000 for a router I can build myself for $50 - especially in a small business situation (i.e., no budget).
