My current setup:
Cisco ASA with WAN (72.74.xxx.xxx) and LAN (192.168.1.1/24)
Tomato Router with WAN (192.168.1.2/24) and LAN (192.168.100.1/24)
FireTV connected to Tomato thorough WiFi with ip address 192.168.100.2
Openvpn tunnel is set up on Tomato router to ipvanish and everything works fine, except…
Clients on 192.168.1.0 can not talk to the FireTV at 192.168.100.2. The FireTV has SMB and SSH setup so I need to connect from clients on 192.168.1.0.
Maybe I could add some static routes to fix, but it wouldn't work when I take it with me to friends houses and hotels and such. I want a permanent simple solution.
Unplug the wire from the WAN interface of the Tomato and plug it into a LAN interface.
Disable DHCP server on Tomato router.
Add a static default route on the Tomato router to 192.168.1.1 (my ASA).
Will my Tomato router pass through the DHCP requests to the ASA for devices like my FireTV?
Will my VPN tunnel still work for my FireTV, even though things are now basically bridged together?
Will my FireTV then be able to talk to devices on the 192.168.1.0 LAN?
I'm gonna test this when I get home from work tonight, but I'm wondering if I'm taking the right approach to this problem or if I should be researching a better solution.
I'm very new to Tomato
I'm thinking that maybe I should just leave everything alone so that my FireTV remains isolated and SSH is not available on the LAN for security reasons.
I could put a USB flash drive into the Tomato router and shared it out as an SMB share for the FireTV to connect to.
Then everything would be safe and isolated and I would still have a shared drive.
But I would still appreciate any thoughts or comments on my idea if anyone what's to share their experiences.
