This is probably a very simple question to answer for those of you with the knowledge but currently I am awaiting Cisco training and I need to open a port on two Cisco 800 series routers.
Basically, I have a timeclock device that will communicate with a server on another site on port 5005.
So I need to open up port 5005 on both ends (on each router), both routers are the same Cisco 800 series (837 from memory) and only have the telnet console. So I'm assuming it'll be the same command twice (once on each router).
I have been searching through the posts here and on the Cisco website but really it all looks like a foreign language. I'm sure once I have a bit of training all will become clear.
I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give me - point me to a website, forum post I missed or if you have the time the line of coding required.
Thanks in advance,

The other question I have was in regards to the names of the access lists themselves and regarding the order. I understand the firewall rule principle (am versed in Win ISA) but the Cisco coding was the stumbling block for me. If I currently have an access list 150 and for some reason I wanted to create another firstly, can I do that (have multiple access lists) and secondly if I can and I created an access list 100 since the number 100 is lower then 150 would its rules take effect first?
