Wanos work mode
« on: June 10, 2015, 06:35:39 AM »
I understand wanos three models, right?
1. Bridge
LAN---core-switch ---(lan)wanos(wan)---Router--ISP Internet
Lan0 ipaddress is management interface ,wan0 don't need ipaddress

    virtual_lan ip(wan)wan0 ip
        Lan---core-switch ---ISP Internet
 virtual_lan ipaddress is lan 's gateway ,wan0  is public ipaddress

3. Bypass
LAN------core-switch ---Router---ISP Internet
Lan0 ipaddress is management interface

1. Yes, but actually the IP address is accessible on lan0 and wan0, since those are just switchports and the IP address is for management.

2. Yes, some default gateways. routing, policy based routing or other type of redirect is needed to get traffic from the lan to go to the virtual lan0 and traffic from the wan to the wan0 address.

3. Yes, while not an official 'mode', in this scenario optimization is not possible, but the device is on the network for configuration purposes.
