Cisco 1700 Router Doesn't connect to the internet

supanatural used Ask the Experts™
I just configured my first Cisco router and it doesn't seem to work. I've learned about it in college which helps but never actually configured one for real.

I can't think of anything that I didn't setup. I configured FastEthernet0 to the right IP but when I boot it up, I can't ping The one idea that I have is that I never typed in the default gateway for my internet. All I plugged in is:

I've pasted the Interface information below when it was plugged in:
FastEthernet0 is up, line protocol is up

Got to set a default gateway

ip route {next hop ip}

conf t
and after
ip route {next hop ip}
above is correct.

you can add interface also as next hop

ip route fast0


Awesome! that worked! I have two more questions. My problem is that the router is blocking ping requests going out. Also, I'm trying to forward the port 1492 to which is our Citrix server. I ran the following command:

ip nat inside source static tcp 1494 1494

Is that right?
Kind of bad form to get an answer and then add more questions unrelated to the original question.  Typically you want to open a new question.

Regardless, your NAT statement looks fine.
