  • Cisco Newbie

    Hi Guys,

    I am afraid I am a complete Cisco Newbie, having spent the past few years working on an HP network.

    We have been "forced" to replace an exisiting ADSL router with a Cisco 877 and I need to be able to configure it quickly as our email has been down for several days. The router will be waiting for me when I arrive at work tomorrow (Tuesday)

    Can somebody direct me to either a post on this board or other link that will help me get a basic setup, I need to be able to:

    Allow SMTP Traffic in both directions
    Allow HTTP Traffic in both directions
    Allow access through firewall from to
    Allow RDP from outside the LAN

    Any and all help is appreciated.

    Hi Ian

    Thanks for your post.

    I suspect that with the GUI, you will be able to configure what you need. However, here are some links to Excel templates that can be filled out to generate configs like you are needing for the 8xx series.

    Configuring the Cisco 871W wireless router: SOHO setup

    Configuring the Cisco 851W or 871W: Standard IOS

    (an 871 config should be very similar to the 877)

    As you go along, let us know if you have any questions.
