Has anyone installed a Sophos XG onto a Fibre to the Node (FTTN) service on Australia's NBN?
What was your experience like?
Please advise if you had any luck configuring Sophos XG on NBN FTTN
Appreciate any assistance
SRW's previous replies answer your question in full. I can confirm, I have it working for NBN, with and without VLAN tags, with this threads replies
Thanks for your message , just an overview on my current setup. I have installed Sophos XG on a mini PC that has four N/W ports. Port 2 has WAN and Port 1 and Port 3 are configured with LAN subnets
When i tried to connect Port 2 directly to NBN NTD and tried to enter PPPoE details , its not been accepted.
My question was is there any other hardware that i need to install on the Mini PC like Sophos VDSL module for the Mini PC to recognize
My ISP Provider is TPG and i dont have static IP from them
Have a good day
when configuring your WAN interface, you select PPPoE, inout the details, then scroll down to DSL and enable the VDSL setting. I looked ta the TPG site and could not find which VLAN id is required, might be provided by yhte configuration as you login.
Thanks for those details, i believe VLAN ID for TPG is 2.
Anyways will give that a shot and let know how it goes
Appreciate your help
If you're using NBN FTTN you need a VDSL Modem. For Sophos XG devices, the Sophos VDSL Modem will work fine. If your using a mini PC with Sophos XG installed you'll need to find a TPLink, Billion, Netgear, etc that has a VDSL modem and supports bridged mode.
I'm using NBN FTTN at home. I have TP-Link VR600 v2. It has bridge mode options, but i havent enabled it yet
Currently TP-Link WAN port is connected to NTD ) , and LAN port from TP-Link is connected to Mini PC Port 2 which has IP 192.168.1.150 ( static )
My doubt is , is this the right way to set it up or should i be enabling bridge mode
Appreciate your cooperation
