I wanted to use the DMZ Ethernet2 port of a Cisco 836 to access the public network. I read that the Ethernet2 interface is restricted from being used as a WAN port. Does this means that I simply cannot use e2 interface to route ou nat internal traffic to the ouside.
My ideia was.. I have an 805 (Serial router in a leased line) router in brigded mode, the external IP is available on the LAN interface. I have this lan interface connected to the ethernet2 interface of the836 which also provides the ADSL connectivity. The ideia was to concentrate both networks on the 836 so that I could use the 836 only to decide my routing.
Altough this WAN limitation on the Ethernet2 interface, does anyone believe that this setups is feasable?
