I am very new to Cisco world.I am having a problem with my internet connectivity for the small business netwok.I was using windows XP pro in 4 boxes and was sharing my internet connection using Internet connection sharing(ICS).One of the Windows XP pro is connected to the Broadband using USB modem.But recently i have added one more box with windows server 2000.now I can't share Internet.Then I read from some article about using routers as NAT.
I got a Cisco 2503 router ,I just want to know can I use this router for NAT and How I can configure for making my internal connection secure and share internet connection.otherwise how can I solve the problem ???
anytype of suggestions/help/advice will be really appreciated.
using NAT on a Cisco 2503 router is fairly straightforward. You define an inside and an outside interface, as well as the addresses that need to be translated. The configuration would look like this:
ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
ip nat inside
ip address 18.104.22.168 255.255.255.252
ip nat outside
ip nat inside source list 1 interface Serial0 overload
access list 1 permit 192.168.1.0
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Serial0
All your clients would have IP addresses in the range 192.168.1.0/24, and their default gateway would be the IP address of the Ethernet0 interface, 192.168.1.1. When accessing the Internet, the internal (192.168.1.0/24) addresses of your clients would be translated to the IP address of the Serial 0 interface. This is called Port Address Translation (PAT), because many IP addresses are translated to one pubic IP address, connecting through different ports.
That said, be aware that the 2503 does not support broadband connectivity (PPPoE or PPPoA), which are mainly used by ISPs. You would need to get a public IP address from a provider, which you then could assign to your serial interface. In addition, you would get a frame relay or leased line connection from a provider, which tend to be expensive. If all you need is Internet access for your small home network, this might be overkill...
What exactly is the problem with your ICS ? Is only the W2K server not working, or none of the other clients either ?
the 2503 is not capable of handling anything broadband-related. For connectivity with the serial port, you would need an X.21 or V.35 cable, but I think this will do not much good in your situation, since you would also have to get an (expensive) leased line or frame relay...
My suggestion is: forget about integrating the 2503...
How many clients do you have configured for ICS ? I think ICS specifies a limit of 10 computers...
