2600 WAN port

I have a CISCO 2621. It has one AUX port, one console port and two 10/100 ethernet ports. I also have a static ip from my isp. Can I configure one of the ethernet port with the static(WAN) and one for the internal network(LAN) ?
I wan to be able to VPN to the a server and possibly do a web server and mail server.

Thanks

If your internet bandwidth is terminating with a RJ45, then you can sure configure one of the Ethernet ports as WAN and other as LAN.

How many public IPs do you have.

If you have more than one IP, then you can use static NATTING.

Otherwise if you have only one public IP, then you can use port forwarding on the router to publish your web server and VPN server.

well it depends on what type of handoff you are getting from your ISP.  Contrary to what prashsax said, it doesn't matter if it is RJ45 or not. What matters is what they are sending you over the line to that RJ45.

If they are giving you an ethernet handoff then yes you can use that ethernet port.
If they are giving you say a T1- (and they dont provide the CSU/DSU), then you will need a CSU/DSU WIC and put that WIC into your 2611.

either one will be an RJ45
