Hi guys ...

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a gui tool for configuring/monitoring a Cisco 2911 router.
We are currently using CCP (Cisco Configuration Professional) but it is very slow and cumbersome.
I'm quite happy to use something third party, it doesn't have to be Cisco.

Thanks

Most effective tool still is the command line ... only other tool I've used for Cisco routers is SDM (and that only for very limited functions), but it's EOL and most likely doesn't cover 2900 series routers. I haven't come across any other Cisco router GUI tool lately ...

There are many snmp based monitoring solutions available, as for configuring you may be limited there. It may be possible to use some snmp tools that can make snmp write changes to the routers, but you may just be stuck with CCP or Ciscoworks, which in your case would be overkill.
