I am trying to setup VPN monitoring for a srp527w Cisco.

This is my first attempt at this so "easy to understand" instructions would be a great help, i have done some searching and its difficult to decipher relevant and irrelevant information based on my limited exposure to this technology.

all help will be greatly appreciated.

I have gotten as far as enabling SNMP on the device itself, havent gotten any further.

A few free SNMP tools are PRTG, 'The dude', and Nagios.  They can monitor network devices and alert you based on events or loss of communication.  Try each one and see which one you like.

There's no easy way to set up these types of tools, because every network is different.  Your best course of action is to install the tools on a test server so you can get a feel for how they work and install them on your production network once you're comfortable with them.
