Sorry, I mixed hat up yesterday.
The firewall's interfaces are actually configured like this:

eth0 62.245.134.146 netmask 255.255.255.240
eth1 62.245.134.130 netmask 255.255.255.240

and the web server is connected to eth0, i.e. 62.245.134.146

I guess I have been working on this for too long...

I have tried to set the gateway of the web server to
62.245.134.144, but when routing is set up at boot time, I get a
"network unreachable" error, athough I can ping 62.245.134.144.
Any ideas?

Also, I don't understand, WHY the gateway should be 62.245.134.144.
Could somebody please shed some light on that?
