I am looking to implement event monitoring on my Cisco 2811 but I only want to monitor for specific events.

Can anyone let me know what the key event codes are to monitor faults with an IPSEC VPN ?

TIA

Turn logging up to "informational" or 6
output all logging to the syslog host

I am using a pair of routers within a configuration to provide VPN access only. I would like to select certain specific events that I can then use to generate alerts to support staff. I am aware that with the PIX it could be configured to block specific event codes and I was wondering if I could configure IOS to only report the codes I want to generate alerts for.

Unfortunately, on a router you cannot suppress specific message numbers like you can on a PIX. You get all or nothing.
You can set the syslog deamon on your syslog server to use a display filter or you can use a syslog analyzer such as Sawmill to give you a daily report automatically.
