Thanks for the reply you'all!!
The numbering convention is what I always use in my networks so that I don't have to remember every network I setup
But, I am willing to try to make it work and document it and if it doesn't work I'll wipe and start with the default IP settings.
This is what I type in from a Vista machine's Firefox browser:http://192.168.80.254/pluto-admin/index.php?section=login
And I'm in the log in Page.
As to the DHCP server Range, I put in the ..80.100 ~ ..80.199 so I can have room 'up top' to assign static IP addresses for other servers/devices that may not be available to the Hybrid.
I also have a range assigned for 'non Pluto' devices on the DHCP from ..80.20 ~..80.99.
Internal NIC Eth1 is set to 192.168.80.254
And the External NIC is Eth0 and it is 10.0.11.250 which is a static IP address from my Linksys router which still has the external DSL modem attached to it. Double NAT basically.
Internet is working and all from the Hybrid in this setup.
Thanks for any other insights!!!!
Still can't get the Bootless MD to come up comepletely. I will try to wipe the MD in the Hybrid and have it try to set it up again.
