I am using a Cisco 1801 router. It has the normal FE0 plys FastEThernet1-8 interfaces .

Can I utilise the interfaces FastEthernet1 -8 ? Will the 1801 then manage routing of traffic.
Do I need to assign each VLAN to a separate FastEternetX or will the 1801 manage this and route accordingly ?

So I am using FE0 as OUTSIDE and want to simulate customers connecting via the internet to a service by IP address. This service will sit on a server in a VLAN "DMZ" which ideally I would to plug into one of th FastEthernetX interfaces. Do I need to assing an IP address to each one of the Physical interfaces or will 1801 know what to do with it having traffic coming in from these interfaces ? How do I assign or do I not need to assign an interface to a VLAN ?
Hope this makes sense.
