Hi Adam,

I don't think this is possible. I think you can configure it to allow VPN traffic to traverse NAT, if you have the client software on PCs.

If they do ipsec (they seem to from the datasheets), you should be able to build a vpn tunnel from the router to another ipsec device. They might not do agressive-mode, but they should be able to build a vpn to route your traffic to a remote network.

The trouble is that the the datasheets for these devices are combined with the 800 series, some of which do do this.

This seems to indicate that the whole soho 90 series does ipsec:

here's  a good link that should probably be about what you're looking for:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk583/tk372/technologies_configuration_example09186a0080094634.shtml

There's a boatload of configuration examples  on cisco's website.

It is admittedly the most convoluted ipsec implementation, but it works once you get your head wrapped around it.

Hope this helps.
