Should I enable control-plane in replacement Cisco router?

There is one line that says "control-plane" in the running config of our current Cisco 851. I am trying to replace it with a Cisco 881w. Should I enable control-plane on the Cisco 881w? What commands should I use? I am currently editing the running config of the Cisco 851 in Notepad and will paste it in the Cisco 881w router config.

The control-plane statement allows you to restrict traffic or police the rate at which traffic reaches the processes that are running on the router. It's always enabled, hence the statement... but what you configure it to do depends on your requirements. Are you exposing any of the routers functions to outside networks?

If you're not, then you're probably good to leave it at default settings.
