I am a network engineer and am trying to commission my very first Cisco - an 877W.
I have run into a major problem with SDM Express.
SDM Express starts up and runs fine. I answer all the questions properly and end up at the confirmation page. Everything is checked and I click 'Finish'.
That's it - one dead router.
It says it takes a while to load, so left it for 30 mins and power cycled it. None of the configuration I entered is in there, it's still a factory default.
Tried it on 2 PCs - Win XP Pro SP2, no firewall, no anti-virus. LAN cable (tried a few of those).
Tried it in IE and Firefox on both machines.
Tried a new power supply.
Tried it on Linux and Mac - doesn't like either of those.
Anyone had the same or got a fix? Is it the router or SDM?
I have had a replacement router - both behave the same way.
(My reseller is foxed and Cisco don't offer support :-()
Well, you are almost there.
if you paste the below, that will simplify the configuration. radio is keep shut as you are worried about it.
I've put a port forwarding for 8080 outside to 80 inside. If you have more addresses router and what expose a a full host, it's a single line command too.
ip dhcp pool sdm-pool1
no import all
dns-server 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
ppp ipcp route-default
no ip access-group 100 in
no ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Dialer0
no ip http server
no access-list 100
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.7.20 80 interface BVI1 8080
The ALGs are all automatic. VPN, can post an example later once you got going.
