Cisco Easy VPN Server setup

Posted on 2005-04-21

Hello experts,

I am trying to set up Cisco's Easy VPN server on a 1760 router.  I am new to cisco vpn, and I also new to Certificate Authorities.

I am using cisco's Security Device Manager software, but I don't need to use it as long as I can get this working.

When I originally tried to set up the vpn server, I was instructed that I needed a router certificate.  On our W2K domain server, I installed Certification Authority.

I am not sure how to create a router certificate, and I believe that is the first hurdle I need to cross.  Once I do that, I will need some help configuring the Easy VPN server on the router.

Also, where can I find Cisco Easy VPN Client software to test the VPN?

I know this is very vague, but I really have no idea how to proceed with this.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
