I have a 7204VXR router at a remote site. We were running a vpn tunnel between the sites and removed the tunnel after we installed a checkpoint firewall. Now, we're tunneling via the firewall. The firewall sits between the router and the switch.
In the process of the switch, changed the ethernet IP of the router and assigned a new IP to the fast ethernet interface. The old IP has been reassigned to the Internal interface on the firewall. The router connects to the firewall via it's external interface. These two are on the same network.
The trouble is that we aren't able to ssh into the router nor gather any snmp data. We can ping the serial interface and the external interface on the firewall, but can't get a response from the ethernet interface itself.
The only other changes we made when we killed the old vpn tunnel was:

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
