Solwise 110 / No-NAT

Hi,
I've recently received my Solwise 110 from Plus.net to go with my No-NAT Adsl connection. However I'm having difficulty making the connection work in anything other than NAT mode.

Let's say I've got network 212.159.98.64 / 255.255.255.252

This means my router will get 212.159.98.65 as it's external IP address. This leaves 212.159.98.66 as my un-used IP address.

I assign my server the address 212.159.98.66 - now how do I configure the solwise 110 to pass through traffic to and from this address, and what do I set it's internal interface IP address to? I've tried setting internal IP the same as external IP on the Solwise - as the example for the D-Link router implies, but it doesn't then connect to Plus.net.
If I assign .66 to the internal interface it doesn't then leave me an IP address for my server.

Someone else must have made this work! Any help would be appreciated!

RE: Solwise 110 / No-NAT

I've had the same issue, BIMAP was the touted solution......however......

Being bored and pissed at the weeked I played around with subnets and just using 255.255.255.0 I assigned what would be your 212.159.98.64 to the ethernet port and then the spare IP to my PC, turned off NAT in the setup and hey presto I could get out and the machine was visible from the net.

Not sure if this is a valid solution as the pub was open so had to get down there to drink more and haven't had a chance to try since. Its something to try though as I presume that PlusNet's subnetting and routing will take care of things up stream as the PPP side of the interface has a 255.255.255.255 subnet.

Cheers

Nic
