Cisco 678 Configuration Information for DMT on Macintosh

NOTE: This config should only be used for DMT connections.

Here are the commands that need to be put into the CISCO 678 to set various modes for our customers. Right now we will only set them to Bridging mode, PPP mode with dynamic IP and NAT/DHCP, or PPP mode with static IP/subnet. We recommend against running DHCP with a Mac network due to how Macs handle DHCP, IP addresses (private or public) should be entered manually. The configuration of firewalls or other configurations are not supported.

NOTE: The set web disable and set web port 8888 lines are needed to avoid router crashes due to a web interface bug/exploit. Upgrading to the latest version of the CBOS will also fix this bug.

Before the router can be configured, a terminal interface will need to be opened to communicate with the Cisco. Please refer to the documentation from Qwest for instructions on opening a connection to the router. With a Macintosh, special software and an adapter may be necessary to complete this connection.

NOTE: If the Cisco prompts to \"write\" at any point during the config, please type \"write\" then press enter before proceeding to the next line.

bridging mode:

enable
set nvram erase
write
reboot

enable
set bridging rfc1483 enable
set interface wan0-0 close
set interface wan0-0 vpi 0
set interface wan0-0 vci 32
set interface wan0-0 open
set web disable
set web port 8888
write
reboot

ppp dynamic and single static with nat

enable
set nvram erase
write
reboot

enable
set ppp wan0-0 ipcp 0.0.0.0
set ppp wan0-0 login username@frii.com
set ppp wan0-0 pass password
set ppp restart enable
set nat enable
set interface wan0-0 close
set interface wan0-0 vpi 0
set interface wan0-0 vci 32
set interface wan0-0 open
set web disable
set web port 8888
write
reboot

Their tcp/ip under the control panels in the apple menu needs to be configured like this:

ppp single static or with routed subnet

enable
set nvram erase
write
reboot

enable
set ppp wan0-0 ipcp 0.0.0.0
set ppp wan0-0 login username@frii.com
set ppp wan0-0 pass password
set ppp restart enable
set int eth0 address ip address
set int eth0 masknetmask
set nat enable
set interface wan0-0 close
set interface wan0-0 vpi 0
set interface wan0-0 vci 32
set interface wan0-0 open
set web disable
set web port 8888
write
reboot

* If they are using CBOS 2.3 or above, with a routed subnet, they will need to add the line \"set ppp default disabled\" after they type set web port 8888 command is entered. \"set ppp default disabled\" does not appear to work on the latest versions of the CBOS. We have not been able to obtain a new command, though the command may no longer be needed.

Their tcp/ip under the control panels in the apple menu needs to be configured like this for ppp with a routed subnet. The customer should know what ip address they chose for the router/gateway (their Cisco 678 is the gateway). The customer can then choose any of the remaining ips for his/her machine. The subnet address will be 255.255.255.x depending on how large of a routed subnet they purchased.

  • IP Subnet (8) = 255.255.255.248
  • IP Subnet (16) = 255.255.255.240
  • IP Subnet (32) = 255.255.255.224
  • IP Subnet (64) = 255.255.255.192
  • IP Subnet (128) = 255.255.255.128
  • IP Subnet (256) = 255.255.255.0
