I have a private network on, with a Websense server on All client machines on the lan use as the default gateway and dns server. The websense server also has another network card with address, and the cisco 877 router has inside address of Will I need to configure an access list to allow traffic from Websense server) to the internet, or will just the default route suffice?

I have this problem too.

If you have a websense server that supports integration, it might be much easier to to configure websense filtering on the Csico router instead of internet traffic passing through the websense server. See here...

However, to answer your question. You probably don;t need an access list to allow traffci from the websense server. This will be allowed automatically. What you may need is a static route for traffic on the network point to the websense server.

ip route

HTH - Pls rate if it does.
