CLI configuration for Cisco router

I've previously used CRWS to configure my SOHO91 router, but the software has recently been upgraded.  Now I can't use a GUI because:

1. The CRWS no longer connects to the router.
2. Attempts to flash the router to allow SDM to be used fail saying SDM is not supported on the router.

And I can't go back to an older version of router software because you need a Cisco service contract to download their software (and I feel a rant coming on about *this*, but that's a different subject!).

So I need to configure very simple VPN, and my only option is to use the CLI.  But I have no idea where to start (the CLI commands seem to bear no relation to the CRWS ones, and I am inexperienced with Cisco).  Does anyone have any ideas where I can start to find out the relevant CLI commands (or get the GUI going again)?

thanks
Neil

Neil,

Could you post a copy of your sanitized config for review?

From the '#' (enable) prompt, 'show run' and 'show flash' should get the required info.

Hmm, should have clarified sanitized a little... While I look at this you should change those passwords!

Looks like the CWRS files got nuked during the upgrade and you can redownload from cisco although I did not see the '91 in the supported list. Since SdM appears to not fly on there, this may be worth trying.

Thanks for the answers, rage419.  No doubt they're excellent, but although it's their software that is at fault, Cisco will not allow me access to the resources that will fix it :-(
