Cisco 857 router configuration how to.
Posted on 2009-02-13
we have Cisco 857 routers configured for our small branch locations. These all connect to our head office via permanant VPN tunnels created via Cisco Security Manager.
We have one instance where local devices can access the internet directly thus bypassing the VPN tunnel back to head office. This was done by a 3r dparty. ie. the internet traffic on that branch's LAN can only go this one other place on the internet, all other internet bound traffic is directed back over the VPN tunnel where it is filtered etc.
For another one location, we need to allow handheld terminals that connect into the router to,
- gain outbound access to the internet to a specific location (via DNS name) probably using a specific port or ports.
- This outbound connection should freely accept any incoming responses where it has originated from the handheld device.
Can anyone please advice the exact commands to use when SSH'd on to the router to enable this.
