Cisco 4700-M router to be set as company Firewall.

Hi,

I have joined a company that has no network firewall (only software firewalls on their workstations).

I have purchased a Cisco4700-M router and have connected my PC Com1 to it's console port and have successfully uploaded my network diagram using Cisco's ConfigMaker v2.6. I have set this to use the only 2 ethernet ports that both connect to a hub on both sides (eg. - private hub to ether0 then ether1 to public hub). Both hubs sit on different ip address ranges and I have assigned an IP (not used elsewhere) on either side with their appropriate subnets.

I have also started the Firewall wizard in the ConfigMaker and denied all access apart from HTTP and SMTP ports.

When I connect the router up to, I am unable to ping or find this device on my network.

Do I have to enable or what ?

Thanks.

 Enabling the firewall on a router and only allowing the http and smtp traffic hmmm
what about echo ping enabling a firewall will disable the ping on the router
enable the telnet port on the firewall port 23 ( I think ) and try telneting to the router...
