I have a Peplink 380 that ive been testing. Currently I have two additional boxes ( intrusion detection) between my firewall and the outside. My boss suggested that I install the Peplink, in dropin mode, between the LAN and the Firewall on the inside ( before the firewall).
So I have tested this putting the Peplink in Dropin mode. However after about an hour and a half… all havoc is let loose on my LAN. Servers start going off line, etc.
I have not been able to find anything or even any mention of putting the Peplink in this type of arrangement, so I assume it is not recommended.
Yesterday when my network started dropping, I did NOT have any rules configured in the Peplink nor was DHCP configured… so im wondering if possibly I have a bad box… or is this behavior typical?
does anyone else have thier peplink installed before the firewall in dropin mode? It seems to me this gives you a lot more flexability with IP adddress especially if you are running N to 1 NAT.
