So as of right now I have Sophos running on a r610 server with Proxmox and I am only using 2 of the 1 gig nic. My question is what's the best way for me to disable to home cable modem DHCP and force connected clients through Sophos. Would setting the DNS be a good route? Next question is can I setup a Linksys 1900ac router on a third nic and use Sophos to control WIFI settings under Sophos wireless like as ap? I can install dd-wrt. I'm a little confused what is the best route and setup for that. Thanks in advance for any help and support. New to Sophos it's a little learning curve.
a quick answer on wifi, sophos cannot control none sophos aps.
put the modem in modem mode and use the XG in routing mode.
Use the linksys as a LAN device, disable its wan interface and connect the LAN cable to a LAN port and you can use some of its ports a switch.. Use the XG for your DHCP server and DNS.
Thank yo:u that cleared some things up for me.
