Cisco 831 Router Question
Posted on 2005-04-11
We have a Cisco 831 Ethernet Broadband Router and a Cisco PIX 506E Firewall. I was trying to set these up yesterday and ran into an issue. The router forces you to enter a different subnet for the 4-port switch it has on it. I want to connect this directly into the firewall and have the outside Interface of the firewall be on the same network as the WAN address. So, I want to plug an Ethernet cable into the switch on the router and the outside interface of the PIX and, for example, if the WAN address is 22.214.171.124, I want the PIX outside interface to be 126.96.36.199
How can I disable this feature of the router so that I can do this, or is it even possible with this router? The PIX is a much better security applicance so of course I want to have this connected.
