Cisco’s IOS security has never been more important.
While many of us are used to using our home routers for home Internet access, it’s only in recent years that we’ve seen that we can easily deploy a home router to work as an internetworking router in our office or home office.
For those of you who are new to Cisco IIS, you’re probably a bit unfamiliar with the basic IIS security rules and how to configure them, but that’s not to say you don’t have the ability to use the Cisco internetworking fundamentals to set up your own home network.
This article will show you how to setup your home network to have access to the internet, configure DNS, and set up a static IP address for your home computer.
We’ll also walk you through how to make a DNS server and a static DHCP server work together, as well as how to manage your DHCP server.
When you’ve finished this tutorial, you’ll have a solid foundation in the basics of IIS that will allow you to deploy your own Cisco I/O network to your home.
