Monitoring multiple networks when in bridge mode

    Do you mean you have .1, .2, .3 all running on the same LAN? do you know what firewalla gold is getting? I assume one of them is DHCP, rest are static? Firewalla only monitored the network that it is getting an IP from, or you can define them through VLAN's

    Yes, they're all on the same physical LAN.

    .1 has DHCP running (but the DHCP server is in the upstream router). Other subnets are static.

    Firewalla at present only gets an IP for the .1 network. The question is whether I can get it to monitor the other networks (which are not VLAN tagged). All traffic flows through the Firewalla as it's on the same physical wire.

    We never tested something like this. Firewalla at the moment can only monitor networks it knows ... So if you have one main network and two sort of semi active networks (with out dhcp), firewalla can't properly configure that on the bridge port.

    Possible to put your .2 and .3 networks on a VLAN?

    The. 2 /.3 have some old devices on them (hence why they're segregated) that don't support VLAN tagging.

    On eg pfSense the functionality here is called virtual IP. It's basically giving the interface another simultaneous IP address.

    I imagine on Firewalla you'd add a feature on the networks screen to add a network that effectively does this. At the moment there's an add a bridge network option but you have to specify a VLAN tag.

    Many thanks for your help.
