Cisco 1710 presahared key

We have taken ownership of a Cisco 1710 router that had been previously maintained by one of our vendors. We now need to create a new VPN to a new vendor and they are asking for a preshared key. How can I tell if this router has a key and what it is? I now have access to the router along with the passwords to get into the config.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Preshared key is a KEY selected by you when you create a VPN between this 1710 router and the Vendor's router. You'll be configuring it on both sides. So basically the key is not something that is there on the router, it is something which you need to select/choose, a password. Take anything...
