What was EZ for Linksys, tuff for Cisco?Locked
I’m sure this has been addressed before, but a search hasn’t yielded much.
I want a Cisco 2514 router to be serve as a NAT router on my DSL line for my lab. Sounds easy, but my DSL provider assigns me an IP with a DHCP lease of 1 hour, so my outside IP address is changing several times a day. My Linksys home router, which I’m trying NOT to use for my lab, let’s you obtain the outside interface IP from the ISP’s DHCP.
As for the 2514, I only know how to assign it’s interface IP statically (i.e., “ip address 220.127.116.11 255.0.0.0”)
I know my router can be a DHCP server, but does IOS support obtaining a DHCP IP for an interface?
