Pix failed, please help configure cisco 2524
Posted on 2006-05-19
I have/had a setup similar to:
____________ _________ ________
| | | | | |=======computer1
T1 ==| cisco 2500 |=======| PIX 506 | ==== | hub |=======computer2...
|____________| |________ | |________|=======computerN
The problem is that the PIX firewall has failed/died. Now nothing is doing the NAT or DHCP.
I would like to assign these functions to the Cisco 2524 if this is possible. I have the rollover cable and have succeeded in reseting the password which no one knew, using Hyperterminal and the console.
I do not know how to configure this router to act as a T1 transceiver/modem and provide NAT and DHCP to about 15 computers using the console or any other way for that matter. Could somebody provide me with a guide, URL or whatever (an idiot guide) so that I can get things up and running until we decide on the firewall situation. For instance what's the difference between configureing ethernet and serial and which one do I configure for IP?
I have no documentation other than the PDF available at cisco, but this does not explain the terminology you are faced with when configuring the router via the terminal emulator.
I know all the IP addresses and subnetting but can not tell whether I am entering information for the WAN or the LAN since the console provides no feedback in this regard.
Any help is greatly appreciated..
