Upgrading to Dedicated Circuit - configuration and route(s) questions
Apologies in advance for the long post and my lack of understanding.
We are upgrading to a dedicated circuit from Lumen. Our current setup utilizes a M270 and a Adtran router which will be going away with the dedicated circuit. They indicate we will need to setup a route to their peer network from the M270 and should be doable.
I've been looking into this with the Fireware documentation and I'm unclear on how or if this is possible. Normally with the Adtran we have the typical setup - our public facing static IP address on the external interface, the gateway and DNS servers, and internal LAN subnets and VLANs IP's all of which of course got handed off to the Adtran for external connections and the M270 handles all internal routing.
Now the connection information I have mentions Customer and Lumen VLAN with no IP information, WAN IP with CIDR that is different from our public static IP, "LAN IP" that is our old public facing IP's network with CIDR, Customer Peer IP and Lumen Peer IP addresses.
For clarity here is the redacted info I have:
IP Version: IPv4
Edge Device/Port: eXX.XXXX lag XX
Upstream Device/Port: XXXX.XXX2
WAN IPv4: 4.X.XXX.XXX/30
LAN IPv4: 65.XXX.XXX.0/27-reused IP
Peer IP (IPv4): 4.X.XXX.XX6
Lumen Peer IP (IPv4): 4.X.XXX.XX5
I'm not sure where to go with these values and if a simple static route will work since I really didn't see anything tying to external interface for the route.
With a static route, if it is the proper way to handle it, will entries need to be made for every subnet/VLAN we have configured? How will static routes affect the failover/2nd WAN connection - will routes need to be defined for that as well?
Or will I need to set the External interface to the new Peer IP's with the Lumen Peer IP as the gateway. What do I do for the Public IP address? Assign it as a 2nd IP address on the interface?
Or do we need to get a routing device from Lumen to replace the Adatan afterall?
