Re: Again, Firewall Public IP's?

Yep, that's why I asked. 
But hmmm, I couldn't tell the debian box to use router x.x.x.2 as 
gateway if it has an interface with the same address...
ok, I probably better change one IP :))

Hm, I sure have two free addresses, but then I would have to subnet our 
Class C net, which is not what I want...
Or did I misunderstand? I thought to get the router-firewall and the 
router to route my packets, the connection between them has to be in 
another subnet than mine. Because for a router there's nothing to route 
if his interfaces are connected to the same IP-subnet.
