Cisco 1605R, firewall or not firewall????

Hi, at the moment I have a Cisco 1605R ios v12.0.4 without firewall. So I have to use access list. What difference would it make if I use an IOS with the firewall option??? What can a ios with firewall do that the access list can't do???

What is the difference between an ios with firewall and a normal access list.

Can a cisco router authenticate username and password wan connections instead of permitting ip address????

Re: Cisco 1605R, firewall or not firewall????

IOS Firewall software implements stateful filtering and other security features. Access lists are static, not dynamic. You have to open up all ports that you need. For more details please see
