I want to simulate RSA authentication in the Lab.

I have few 2600 routers and 3550 switches and a PC, is there a way to set up a lab for this purpose, simulating End users that comes through VPN and should first authenticate through RSA.

I don't have internet connection in the Lab.

Thanks

Are you thinkinh about something like sercurid? You might need a second pc then to run the RSA server on.

For the config, have a look at: http://www.rsa.com/rsasecured/guides/imp_pdfs/Cisco_Router_VPN_12_4_AuthMan61.pdf
and see if that helps you.

Well some time ago I got a test package straight from RSA. It contained the software and two tokens (valid for a couple of months). I'm not sure if they still do that, but you might want to inquire at RSA.

I wonder if there is RSA that can be located in a tftp server, and the router will check the user credentials against the RSA.

Tftp has no provisions for authentication, so that won't work I'm afraid.

Mmmmm, I'm afraid you'll at least need 2003 server for that (or RHEL 4.0-1).......
