I setup my Firewalla already. Original mode was not working with my Linksys so I set it up with fixed management IP and DHCP mode.. here are the IP mappings..
Original Internet provider router : 192.168.1.x <-> Home WIFI router 192.168.17.x <-> Firewalla DHCP 192.168.18.x
Now that Firewalla was the DHCP host my phone was able to control the box, perfectly..changing devices names, checking alerts and so on. Double thumbs up !
But ... yesterday, I changed my primary phonem the one controlling Firewalla and the new one needs to be associated with the Firewalla.
I face an issue.. : it doesn't see the box and I wonder how to do. I tried rebooting Firewalla, scanning the QR Code, but nothing works.. at one time it told me that the firewalla is under a different network thant the one my phone runs on (192.168.17.x vs 192.168.18.x) but it didn't let me connect to it.
While setting a manual IP to my phone under the original subnet 192.168.17.x , it doesn't to see Firewalla better.. either if I know it's still running because I can see the filtered traffic and get new IPs with other devices.
So my question is : How can I setup Firewall in these conditions please ?
Right now.. instead of waiting 5 minutes searching.. I would be happy to have a file for 'Management Interface IP' where I could fill the Firewalla management IP :-D
