Cisco VPN Connection Problem

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I'm trying to setup a connection to dial in to a Cisco 1711 router and connect to it with a Cisco VPN Client (version  When trying to establish the connection, it never prompts to enter in the XAuth credentials.  When I try port over the VPN configurations from a Cisco 1841 (where the connection works) over to the 1711 router to allow the VPN client to connect, I can't get to the logon prompt.  I get the following errors:

Secure VPN Connection terminated locally by the Client.
Reason 412: The remote peer is no longer responding.

The router already has a site to site VPN to the Cisco 1841 at a different site.  The 1841 is the one that is already allowing the dial-in VPN connection along with a number of other site to site connections.

I'm connecting to the right IP, the VPN ports are open, I'm using the same transform set information on the other router and aaa is enabled for the authentication.  I'm not sure what I'm missing but it's obviously something.

I would like to be able to at least get some kind of reply from the router when I try to connect from the client.
