Quick-start scenario: Configure a basic Internet gateway

This scenario shows you how to configure the system to provide:
  • Ability to route traffic between the office LAN and the Internet
  • Ability to access the system from the local network through SSH
  • DHCP capability to provide dynamic IP addresses to internal devices
  • NAT capability to translate multiple internal addresses to a single external address
  • Firewall capability to prevent system access from the Internet
