Bit of an odd one?

    Hi all,
    A little query for you. I have a series of WAP 54Gs scattered around my place, which are run off a DHCP server built into m0n0wall. I need on occasion to get onto the access points, and as m0n0wall puts my main pc on a different subnet the access points seem to ignore me. I have a printer on the same subnet as the APs, and I can get to that from my LAN, just not the access points.
    It seems they only will take HTTP requests from IPs on the same subnet.
    Are there firmware revisions that will sort this? or am I buggered?

    Cheers in advance

    I havent played much with monowall however i can tell you for certain the gui does not care where the request is comming from. I have several different routers on several different networks and as long as the my firewalls allow the http traffic i have no issue. From the inside to inside or inside to outside never an issue but from the outside in i have in the past had to make allowances for what i was trying to do. Good luck

    It really odd tho, I can access other things on that subnet, except the APs!

    I agree strange things happen, it perhaps is monowall blocking http request or having some other port based issue. Try viewing the logs to see if anything seems out of the ordinary. Is HTTPS perchance turned on by default instead of http on the AP's?

    If i could be bothered to go to the lengths required, I could show the https request hitting the ap, and being completely ignored. It has to be the AP.
    The reason it works on yours i suspect is because yours are routers, not APs
