I have 2 public static IP' s allocated from my ISP.
IP #1 is used by WAN1 and the rest of my internal network is NATted behind WAN1. (all works great)
What I need to do is basically use public IP #2 for an Edge Server which happens to be a virtual machine under the existing ESX server.
My problem is that I don' t know what to do so that specific VM will use that public IP directly. I was thinking " maybe" I would need to enable another VDOM with Transparent mode enabled?
I really don' t know how to tackle this right now so any advice will be appreciated.
if you create a VIP with the second public IP as ' external IP' on the WAN1 interface, your FGT will respond to both public IPs. The ' mapped IP' would point to the (internal) IP of your server.
If you absolutely have to assign the second public IP directly to the server then using a transparent VDOM would be a way to do it. I hope you can avoid the effort though.
