Hi all,

Can anyone who has experince of the Cisco 851W/871W SOHO router tell me if it has a CLI like a regular Cisco router such as the 2600, 2800 series etc? Or, is it all HTML driven? Thanks.

Hi David

From the data sheets for the 851W & 871W routers


Management Features

? Cisco SDM

? Management of LAN switch ports

? Cisco Configuration Express

? Cisco Configuration Engine support

? DSL firmware update from Flash

? Cisco Service Assurance Agent (SAA)

? Telnet, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMPv3), CLI, and HTTP management



As you can see CLI is available. The SDM web interface is designed for people with little or no experience of Cisco IOS but you can still telnet / console in and use the CLI if that is what you want.
