Hi,

I have a Cisco 837 router that I would like to use as an Easy VPN Server. My
goal is to allow remote users to act as part of my internal network
(192.168.1.1 /24)

1)     Can someone please point me to setup guides, urls, tutorials to do
this w/ the 837 and IOS Version 12.3(2)T1 ? The scenario that Cisco uses in
their documentation has the 837 as a client peering w/ a Cisco 3000 VPN
server and that is not what I want.

2)     Where can I download the Cisco client software from

Thanx.

I quote from:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/netsol/ns340/ns394/ns171/ns27/networking_solutions_package.html

=============
Cisco Easy VPN Remote is now available on Cisco 800, 1700, & UBR900 Series Routers, Cisco PIX 501 Firewalls and Cisco VPN 3002 Hardware Clients. The Cisco Easy VPN Server is available on numerous Cisco VPN routers including Cisco 1700, 7100 and 7200 Series Routers with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(8)T, Cisco PIX Firewalls, and all Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrators.
=============

It would appear from 837 documentation that the 837 can act as an Easy VPN Server for up to five clients (ref: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/products/hw/routers/ps380/products_data_sheet09186a008010e5c5.html )

For sample config of how to setup the Easy VPN Server on an IOS router, try:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/netsol/ns340/ns394/ns171/ns27/networking_solutions_white_paper09186a0080189133.shtml
(they use a 1751, but it is just as applicable to 837)


Your second question, from: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps2308/index.html
=============
Customers with SMARTnet(tm) support contracts and encryption entitlement may download the VPN Client free of charge at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/kobayashi/sw-center/vpn/client/
=============
So if you have a smartnet contract on your router, download the client (which I know you can). If not then you have the option of purchasing smartnet or purchasing the VPN client software. Either way it is not a "free" download, you need to have some sort of entitlement to be able to get it.
