I have a cisco 1921 router with a 4 port switch hwic card.  I've attached an asa firewall and I'd like that to be a client access vpn.  How do I forward all client vpn traffic coming in on the external ip of the router to the asa?

Create static nat for UDP 500 and 4500

ip nat inside source static udp <ip of asa> 500 interface <wan interface> 500
ip nat inside source static udp <ip of asa> 4500 interface <wan interface> 4500

Oh yeah, and make sure you allow those two ports through any applied access-lists

I think that will work.

 If I have a site to site vpn currently running on the cisco router I would need to move that to the asa otherwise it will not work since the router will forward those ports to the asa.
