Sophos XG 135 with IP over WAN, in a different network than Alias interfaces

I can have on the same WAN interface, an IP 189.10.10.46/255.255.255.192, with gateway 189.10.10.1.
And several IP Alias on the same interface, only on a different network, 189.10.20.16-189.10.20.30/255.255.255.240?

Alias would be for publishing services hosted on the internal network, such as web server, erp application, e-mail server, etc.

Wait and thanks !

  • Ivanildo,

    Alias IP must use the same subnet of the physical interface.

  • But I have a problem, the provider gave me an IP for the interface that is part of a network. It is a block of valid IP addresses that are part of another network.


    This works today on the client, it uses Fortigate and the equipment supports primary and secondary IP on the same interface, in which case the secondary IP is on the same network as the Alias.
    The client will switch from Fortigate to Sophos XG, but this has to work.

    What do I do ?

  • Ivanildo,

    I tried on v18 and you can.

    Check the screenshot.

  • Yes, it lets you configure, this is done in version 17.5.9 MR9, the question is, does it work? If XG will be able to receive and route packages.

    I will perform a test on my lab and let the community knows.

    I applied the proper NAT on v18 and created an ad-hoc firewall rule.

    It works!

  • I tested it here, it worked very well.

     

    Sophos XG supports having an IP of a network on the interface and the Alias on another network, the provider sends the packages to the services published in the Alias and it accepts :)
    Now how the provider does his part, I don't know.

    See the picture of how it turned out.

    Thank you for your support!
