How can I encrypt the Metro E tunnels we have established using the 3750's in place, without any added hardware or software purchase?
Are the 3750's capable of encrypting the data that passes through the Metro E?

Unfortunately not, you will need an IPSEC capable device on each end to encrypt the traffic through the tunnel such as an ASA or ISR.

I've never had a need to do this personally over metro lines, just the Internet.
