Can a remote EZVPN 871 router connect automatically to a 2821 VPN headend?

Hello All.

My issue is that the tunnel does not start up automatically. That is, when the remote router is first started/restarted, or if the tunnel breaks for whatever reason, the router again prompts for the xauth login at the console level. This is with the “xauth userid mode interactive” line on the remote router setup.

 xauth reqs
If the line is changed to “xauth userid mode local” as suggested by some to enable autologin, I get an error that indicates the server does not allow password saving:


 server no pass error
This after setting the save password option in the headend:

 headend config
Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.

Thanks!

I see "server does not allow save password command".

Did you try to enter it manualy like with:

crypto ipsec client ezvpn xauth

You should be prompted with username and password prompt.

As I stated above, with the “xauth userid mode interactive” line on the remote router setup, it does prompt for login credentials on the remote router console. I need for the router to supply credentials and establish the tunnel automatically since these will be deployed in classrooms.
