Unable to connect with SDM to 871W

Unanswered Question
Aug 26th, 2009

I AM able to connect to the 871W router with IP address

BUT, when I change it to, I cannot connect.

The router appears to have saved the change and to be functioning on this address as it provides DHCP IP addresses properly to my PC (


I have this problem too.

I remember that there is an access-list per default on the router per the factory config.

You may want to go in the CLI: telnet to the router and then check for any access lists applied to the interfaces and remove them.

thanks - I can see the SDM Default ACL for in SDM. Where in the CLI can I remove the rule.

Under the interfaces, there is a command:

ip access-group XX in


ip access-group XX out

Where XX is the ACL number. Remove those commands from the cli, after you found from the show run output, which interfaces they are applied on with the following command:

router#conf t

router(config)#int f0/0

router(config-if)#no ip access-group XX in

That example was on interface fastethernet 0/0

This should solve your issue.
