I am currently looking to purchase a Cisco home router to replace my ISP modem, which uses the phonelines (adsl2+).
But which one? I have no idea :(
I run a few servers (VMware ESXi) that i would like to reach from the outside world over a VPN connection
through the Cisco device. The servers run a few sql, https, java services i am going to place in a DMZ with a debian firewall infront.
I would like to use Quality Of Service in my network, i use in-home streaming technologies, i run disk encryption on all my devices and would
also like to play with encryption on the lines internally. I also play around with a raspberry cluster for various tasks (mostly security cracking / breaking) and use a lot of time on security and want to learn more.
So (in my own logic) i need a device with a healthy list of features, and somewhat powerfull?
I would like to be able to install a gigabit switch module in the router, to avoid also getting a switch seperately as a 24/7 device.
A colleague vaguely told me he would use a Cisco 1841 router. It has two expansion slots, one for a WIC card and the other i can use for a
switch module? But can it handle a gigabit module, and can i get a image new enough to give me the features i need? Would such a image be free to download or would i need to purchase them seperately?
Im also in doubt if i should go for a Cisco router or layer three switch. If a router should it be the 1800 series or go bigger and go 2800 series or something else / newer? The two above devices cost the same, and only power consumption varies 20W vs 100W which both are acceptable for a 24/7 device.
how do we restrict a router interfaces from directly connected to Some vlans? can any one help me to figureout?the question is Router should not have interfaces directly connected to Vlan 30 and Vlan 40
I've got a one problem. Me and my friend have the same ISP. I checked my External IP address at WhatIsMyIp.com and my friend do it to. And we saw we have the same External IP.So my question is can 2 routers have the same External IP address?If i'm right 2...
