I have setup neth on my home esxi6.5 box with very healthy amounts of CPU/RAM + 2 NICs. The box has 3 physical NICs and one was being used with securityonion as a span interface being mirrored all my home network traffic. I am not planning to use SO after neth integration. Basically end goal is to condense my services and storage and IPS/firewall into one place while using the web proxy and cache to speed up browsing. As a nethnoob I’m not yet ready to toss my edgerouter lite from the scheme until I’ve worked out all the kinks and even then I was hoping to get a lab segment going and it might come in handy there.
Is there any best practice info I should know before going at this and are there any write ups for a similar use case that are out there I might not have stumbled on? I have not been successful so far trying to make neth the gateway for my home network in front of the ERL as gateway to the internet. I tried moving dhcp and dns to the neth in an attempt to use it as a gateway without doing any wire changes. It seemed to work for most things but my Unifi AP and chromecasts didn’t seem to play nice. I blame user error here obviously and can’t seem to find any topics that both match my setup hopes and go into better detail about how they were successful so I can’t yet get a good idea exactly where I’m going wrong. Thanks for any help. Very excited to utilize neth and love the snappy web interface so far.
