Cisco 1921 ISR WAN Config
Posted on 2012-08-22
My first post so bear with me!
We have a satellite office connected to our network via a PTP dedicated private connection. At this time, there is no router on either end of the connection and the users in the satellite office appear as local users with the same IP address range as the head office users. This means that all internet traffic generated by the satellite users is coming across the PTP connection and going out from head office. In order to ease the load on the PTP connection I would like to put a Cisco 1921 that I have in the satellite location to re-direct their internet traffic to a local provider, but still allow seamless connectivity to the head office resources as needed.
The Cisco 1921 has two gigabit ports Ge0 and Ge1 (IPBase) and, based on my limited router knowledge, I need three (3) ports to make this work as envisioned. So, in order to do this I need an additional Ge port, correct?
Do I need to change the IOS image from IPBase to another level?
Thank you for your kind responses
