RFE : Secondary WAN Subnet IP address configured to be included in Default Address Objects

prestonpreston Enthusiast ✭✭

In the Diag page there is an option to use a Secondary Subnet for the WAN Interface, we have customers using this in two different scenarios

1) when they ran out of IPs on their main subnet and then their ISP has routed to them more IPs but in a different subnet.

2) Their ISP routes a static Public range /29 etc.. via a changing Dynamic Public IP in a different subnet using PPPoE as the connection method.


But when configured as below, it doesn’t appear in any of the default address objects like All X1 Management IP, all WAN Interface IP or WAN Subnets etc..

It would be good if it did then users could then use this for Site to Site VPN, IPSec VPN or as a different IP for the SSL VPN or even as the firewall management IP (as in scenario 2 mentioned above all this is not possible apart from aggressive mode Site to Site VPN).

 This would be a real Public IP the IP above is just chosen for the screenshot.
