acceptig VPN connections through a Cisco 3660 router


i have a cisco 3660 router and u need to setup a VPN service on it so that i can remoltly connect to that router/network.

i'm not sure whether i'll need a sepcial IOS image to be relaced on the router, or it is already supported on that 3660 plateform..

again all what i need is to remotly dial-in via VPN from the internet to that router to access that network.

here is the info u might need :
# sh ver
IOS (tm) 3600 Software (C3660-I-M), Version 12.2(24), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

You'll need to upgrade your IOS -

c3660-is-mz.121-2.T is straight IP IOS - no VPN
c3660-i-mz.122-24.bin is IP PLUS - still no VPN

You will need a VPN load - IP PLUS IPSEC 3DES would be able to do VPN from the router.

Cisco part # S366CK9-12313

i've got this IOS image: c3660-js-mz.121-5.bin , and wondering if it will do the kob or not ..
i rearched through the Cisco FN and found two features related to VPN:
- VPN Tunnel Management
- Virtual Private Dial-up Network (VPDN)
- MPLS Virtual Private Networks (VPN)

i coundn't get the ios you mentioned so i really hope that one mentioned above will work

please advice..
j = enterprise
s = plus
still not ipsec or 3des

Enterprise gives you older protocols (Appletalk, IBM protocols, etc.)

You really need to get the smartnet contract on the 3660 - then you can download the lastest images.


get a software upgrade package to the latest of the one you need (S366CK9-12xxx)
