Chapter 9. Advanced Cisco Router Configuration

In Chapter 7, "Introduction to Cisco Routers," we focused on providing you with the essential skills you need to configure and maintain Cisco routers. This chapter covers enterprise-related configuration tasks such as

  • Controlling network traffic flow

  • Router link redundancy and backup

  • Network address translation

  • Tunnel (VPN) configuration

  • WAN interface configuration

Keep in mind that these services are not necessarily exclusive to enterprise networking, but they do represent, to many, the next step on the internetworking evolutionary ladder.
