I came here looking for specific guidance. You are sending me to the Cisco site which I had already mentioned did not prove to be helpful. You gave me a link to go search for documents, which is what I have done for nearly 4 days! I need more specific help.
I have a router which is going to replace an old Linksys router. I need it configured for DHCP and cannot find good directions to get the router started. The cisco CP program is not giving me access to configure the router. I need help to get initial port setup.
I sent a message this morning in response to your answer and I am still waiting for a response.
I have a Cisco 891FW router which has scant details on getting initial setup done. I have looked at Cisco documentation and cannot find anything specific about this router. I have downloaded the Cisco CP Professional and even that does not give me options to configure the router. I maybe using it wrong.
Basically, I want to replace a linksys home router in a small office setup. The router should be configured for DHCP and port forwarding. It will connect to a T1 modem and then distribute addresses to the network. How can I configure ports for this? I am comfortable using the CLI, but can also use the GUI if available.
Yes. I have it connected. I'm using Putty to connect.
Ok, got those commands in.
ipconfig gave me 169.254.9.27 255.255.0.0 and the page does not load.
it came back up with same IP.
Right now I am testing in home office. I have a PC hooked up to gigabithernet0
ok. Is it ok to pick up tomorrow? I have two morning meetings.
You could send me the steps and I can try them and send an update.
I am setup and ready to resume. router is hooked to modem but not powered up yet, waiting on your response.
Ready to start.
