  Author: Martin ChamamboEmail Address:chamambom@gmail.comOur Experience with Zeroshell The following Document explains our experience with Zeroshell as an internal router and willaddress the way Zeroshell was configured together with the shortcomings that we faced on the setupthat we currently have. To say the least, so far it’s the most notable open source router that worksgreat with the simplest configurations there is. NB: The setup explained below is the precise or most notable easy way to get up Zeroshell upand running. Before doing anything with Zeroshell, there are a few things that one must possible know beforeclaiming that Zeroshell doesn’t work at all and below are the list of things that possible one shouldtake NOTE of:1.   Take note of the default settings that Zeroshell comes with e.g. Default IP Address which inthis case is 192.168.0.752.   Taking the note above will ensure that whenever you want to configure Zeroshell over anetwork, one should make sure that Zeroshell is inside one’s network. Below is what we did to get Zeroshell working Short Description of what we intended to achieve and how we achieved it.Our organization has a firewall at the end of the network i.e. our firewall is the gateway to theinternet as shown below by the diagramsThe internet cloud↓↑   This is the firewall that routes all traffic to the internetThese are the clients that Zeroshell serves and their subnet is the 192.168.0.0 network Zeroshell is software router and henceforth routes all requests from one subnet to another. It isconfigured with two network cards (Logically it has two networks) where each card has a Unique IPAddress. The Unique IP addresses are (192.168.1.6) which is in the (192.168.1.0) network and theother one is (192.168.0.1) which is in the (192.168.0.0) network. Simple put: Our network comprises  of two subnets, the 192.168.0.0 network and the 192.168.1.0 network and Zeroshell is configured insuch a way that all clients in the 192.168.0.0 have their http requests intercepted by Zeroshell ‘scaptive portal and all these requests are then routed to the 192.168.1.0 network. Example Cephi’s Network has clients that connect through Zeroshell and all their requests are routed from the(192.168.0.0) network to the (192.168.1.0) through the 192.168.0.1 gateway, the routing table in place continues to route the traffic into the (192.168.1.0) network through the other network interface card (192.168.1.6).When all the traffic is now in the (192.168.1.0) network, all traffic isagain routed to the final gateway (192.168.1.1). Which is our firewall?Screen shorts of the most important parts to consider when building Zeroshell   For the screenshot above make sure that all the fields with the xxxx are filledThe only shortcoming that we have faced has been the http proxy service. It works for a while butthen in the end it hangs and it is kind of unreliable. But altogether it’s a perfect distro
