Routing static IPs

    I have a block of 8 static IP addresses from my ISP (not actually a sequential block, sadly, *.*.*.27,29,47,49,51,52,54,56)

    I have an adsl modem/router in bridged mode connecting to my stock tomato 1.22 router which is connecting to my network.

    I will probably only use 3 of the ip addresses, but they will go to 3 different servers.

    I can't seem to figure out using tomato how to configure it so that when I set up a pc with a static IP it gets sent the right information.

    Could some kind soul please point me in the right direction.

    I have searched for static IP information, but all I can find is information regarding how to deal with things when your ISP isn't good enough to grant you a static IP!

    Thanks for listening :)

    I don't think this is going to be possible with Tomato, as there is no way for it to assign eight different IP addresses to the single ppp0 (or whatever ;) interface that is outward-facing. This would perhaps be a task for OpenWRT, or more likely a dedicated firewall/router Linux box with a bit more functionality and horsepower than Tomato. ;) Tomato is intended for SoHo router/wireless setups where there's generally only a single IP, whether it be dynamic or static.

    In the meantime then, if I were to make do with the one ip address, how best to do that, and ignore the others I've been given?

    Just set up with a static public IP instead of DHCP, then set up a DMZ forwarding to the internal IP of the back-end server you want associated with it (assuming you still want all traffic for that public IP to go to one server). If you want to split the traffic across servers, skip the DMZ and do individual port-forwarding.

    This may not be out of the question, however it will greatly depend on how your isp is routing to you. PM your ip info, subnet mask, default gw and or next hop your isp has given you.

    Coincidentally, someone posted the same question on a bboard at work. Here was the response.
    I hope this helps. Good luck.
