View Full Version : Anyone know about this router?
01-26-2004, 11:03 AM
Here at work, we have a Cisco uBR900 Series Router. On the back it has a CATV Coax In, 4 RJ-45 network jacks, and a RJ-45 Console Jack.
This deal is a combo Cable Modem + Router with built in firewall.
My problem is, for the life of me, I have no clue how to get at the firewall. I'm pretty sure it requires the Console port somehow, but I havn't a clue.
Anyone know what I need to do to get at the firewall? I have a few applicaitons here that really DESPIRATELY need me to open a few ports in the firewall, but I'm thus far unable to do so. I've tried looking around on the web but didn't come up with much of anything.
10,000 bitbucks to the one who can help me!

Heheh, you're not playing with some linksys toy here. It's a command line interface that you have to learn.

Walden: Nope, tried that with no luck.
whipat: the router was installed before I was hired.. Last IT director didn't do a very good job at storing manuals and software, so I have nothing but the router itself.
Grogan...... :jaw drop:
Looks like I've got some studying to do >_<;;; Thanks for the link!

Was going to say (until I noticed that Grogan pointed you in the right direction) that most Cisco Routers use command line interface. I have to establish a serial connection with my 2600's to do anything with them. And than it is all command line. There are no GUI's at all when you get to this level of service adn protection that the Cisco's are capable of.
Good Luck JB. I have several volumes on how to do the various tasks my routers will do. It does take some time.
I would also suggest that you use different passwords for the varying levels of command that I think are availible on the router. Just adds one more level of security against the hackers of the world today. ANd if your on a CableTV system than you will have more than your fair shair of attempts. Trust me on that one.

Grogan - If you need any help let me know. I spend all day working on Cisco routers & Switches. I've never used that model but it seems it's just runnign IOS, so no biggie.
