IRB allows you to route and bridge over a set of interfaces; however, just because it is bridged doesn't mean the
packets will be received by endpoints--you need routing in place, and/or endpoints need to be inclusively configured.
E.g. if you had two PCs with a crossover cable connecting their NICs, one with 10.0.0.1/24 and the other with
10.0.1.1/24 they would have a link, but they would be unable to communicate with IP.
If you use IRB, then you are creating a bridge group, probably with the intent to route between the group and the
routed interfaces on the router. Your config backs that up... but it looks a little skewed (with perhaps some syntax
errors?). Towards that end you would need to add something like this:
int BVI 1
ip address x.y.z.p netmask
bridge 1 route ip
This sets up the behavior of bridge unless we can route. If it bridges, then make sure the netmasks are inclusive, or
else again endstations will not register the traffic.
This is a bit puzzling to me. usually you would set this up using all routing, with:
nexthop provider ip1
OutsideInt provider ip2
Then you would just route and firewall appropriately.
I hope this helps!

Subject: [fw-wiz] Transparent DMZ
I am trying to use a cisco 2621 router as a firewall, it should have
an outside, inside and dmz, the dmz should be able to use public ips
on the machines behind it. If anyone is familiar with sonicwalls, just
like a sonicwall transparent dmz.
Currently what i have done is made my 3 interfaces, set ips on the
outside and inside, then bridged with irb bridging the outside and dmz
interfaces. the inside interface works fine however the dmz does not
seem to be able to pass traffic(at one point in time while i was
configuring this it did work, i just cant pinpoint when).
188.8.131.52 is my dmz host, and it can not get out to the internet
or receive connections.
