Router, T1 Question

Hello,

I have a router running Vyatta.  It doesn't have a T1 card, and they are too expensive.  I was looking on ebay and see Cisco 1721 routers.

I'm wondering if I can terminate a T1 into the 1721 and then connect into the Vyatta router.  However, I want to be able to control everything from the Vyatta.  So basically make the Cisco pass all traffic...

Can anyone explain if this is possible, and how complicated/sloppy it will make things?

Hi,
You can probably just put the provisioned IP from the ISP on the 1721, and then pass routed traffic to the Vyatta, to do the rest.

Create a 30 bit net between your two routers and stick a couple of static addresses on your 1721 to route traffic out and in. That should take care of it.
