Cisco CCP Easy VPN Interface ?

I am setting up a vpn via CCP 'New skin On SDM'  by the looks of it.  I am 1 out of 100 on Cisco thats way i am using CCP.

The question is relating to the interface i have the options of

Unnumbered to the Dialer

Unnumbered to the Vlan

Or Unnumbered to a new loop back, 'The On Screen Prompts' seem to say this is the best option

When and try a create the loopback interface I get a error Please enter a valid IP/Sub Net ?

What is the best.correct interface to use ?,

When I sort some other issues with DHCP and the Firewall we will have 2 x wan interfaces, do i need to alter the config to caccomodate this now.

Also is this loop back unterface inside or outside for the purpose of running the firewall wiz

you not need loopback interface for Easy VPN.... could you show us the whole config?
I prefer using unnumbered to the VLAN.  A LAN interface has to be alive for the tunnel to work right, but that shouldn't be a problem (the tunnel won't be of much value if there's no LAN connected to the router).  If you decide to use a loopback, you'll need to use something other than the "expected" loopback address of IOS loopback interfaces typically use an address from your addressing schema, and offer a virtual interface to connect services to that never go down (unless administratively down).
