I'm hazarding a guess here.
What I think the OP means is that Reliance is routing 2 subnets
22.214.171.124/30 and 126.96.36.199/29 to this link. If this is so, the WAN
link must have one IP address in each of these subnets.
Like the case below, a similar set needs to be set for the second subnet
Wan IP: 188.8.131.52/30 and 184.108.40.206/29
System IP: 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 (example)
Netmask : 255.255.255.252 and 255.255.255.248
Gateway: 22.214.171.124 and 115.248.77.<gwip last octet> (to be given by
Once this is done, set up DNAT for the available 4 IPs in the
126.96.36.199/29 subnet to internal systems. Like some one pointed out,
mapping external IPs to internal LAN IPs means these internal systems need
to be fortified well. Please be careful. One good option will be to
expose/install only secure services and maintain strict vigil.
