Hi , sorry if i post in wrong group....

my current scenario at my company is look like this:

internet ====>IPCop firewall =======> Internal LAN

(IPCop is running all the services: DHCP, DNS, NAT etc)

Now, I receive the w871 router this week, I want to make the scenario like this:

Internet =====> Cisco 871 =====>IPCop =======>Internal LAN

Please suggest me, which services i have to run on 871 router and which services i have to run on IPCop or even if you have better suggestion or scenario, please please tell me.

thanks in advance!

Why not use SDM to configure it as you would find it easier, if the router has a K9 image all the firewall "Zone based firewall" will be there. You can use the router for NAT/DNS/DHCP and remove IPcop from your infrastructure.

I can only assume that this is a very small office due to the use of the 871 SOHO router so maybe review what IPcop is giving you.
