Cisco 2600 Router - home network

I have a 2600 router that I setup in 2007 for use in a home network.  Due to sitting with no power since 2008, the config is lost.  Basically I don't remember anything about programming routers.  I've spent the day researching and trying to remember.

My network setup consists of 1 internet IP address and a dhcp pool of  I don't want any restrictions of outbound connections.  I don't want any allowed inbound connections just yet.  So far I connected my laptop to fa0/1 and my internet to fa0/0.  From the terminal inside the router I can ping anywhere I like, including resolving hostnames.  From my laptop I can ping the internal and external addresses of the router, but no farther.  Something isn't clicking right in my crazy head and it's getting late.  I was hoping for a little help on completing this.  Below is my (shortened) config.

One note about the access-list before you read the config.  I have access-list 1 to permit any.  I set access-group 1 in and out on both fa0/0 and 0/1 just to see.  No success.  I removed them until I got it right.  So that is why you don't see it in the config.  I'm not even sure which is supposed to be set at this point.  Hopefully I'll have a cleaerer head on the subject in the morning.

You are missing a NAT statement to connect ACL and NAT POOL and do NAT translation.

"ip nat inside source list 1 pool home"

Read below link for more detail.

And, let me if it is not working.

Have a good weekend.

That was perfect and exactly what I was looking for. I knew I needed to

connect them all together somehow, but couldn't think of how for the life of

me. Thank you very much. I also changed my access to only permit as I should have done last night.

If you have time for one more question, I would be grateful. I am trying to

map port 80 to my web server, and I'm falling a bit short. I have several

PDF documents and a few webpages listed here that all say the same thing,

however it isn't quite working. Here is what I have tried.

ip nat inside source static tcp 80 80
