I have a Cisco 1841 router. I already have several point to point VPN tunnels configured. I would like to configure the 1841 as a VPN server that uses the Cisco VPN client to connect. I know very little about this and need some step by step help. The simplest possible configuration that will work is all I need.

I have seen other articles with broken links to Cisco. Please provide some simple step by step instructions. ANY help will be appreciated.

TJHanks for the  link. I currently use SDM to configure the router. The Wizzard looks amost identical. Where I was getting confused is with the following:

Shouyld I use the default transform sets?
Which encryption is default or know  to work with the cisco  client?
Do I use a numbered loopback or un-numbered on the external interface?
When creating an IP address pool do I use addresses from the inside interface or a completely new address subnet? I assume a new subnet.

Since this is a live production router I do not have the luxury of  trying a bunch of configurations out.
Thanks!

--- Shouyld I use the default transform sets
you can defines transform set as you want, with the encryption as you need,, and you can use them all together as
crypto ipsec transform-set ESP-3DES-SHA esp-3des esp-sha-hmac
 
--- Do I use a numbered loopback or un-numbered on the external interface?
i prefer loopback if you have,, or the outside interface ..


--- When creating an IP address pool do I use addresses from the inside interface or a completely new address subnet? I assume a new subnet.

as you want ..

anyways, use this link for SDM and CLI commands ,, can help you more
