The information you seek is in the link I shared in my response to your original question here:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29087498/Is-1841-router-compatible-with-SDM-ASDM.html

The short answer is that it is not so much the router as much the IOS code level you are running on that router.  If the router you are seeking to purchase on ebay does not come with the correct IOS installed, you will need to download from Cisco which generally requires a current contract with them.

Yes I know but as my instructions recommended it I went with the 1841.

So I purchased the below which has ios 12.3 (20)

If it does not allow me to use the SDM/ASDM for spefically:

- site to site vpn
- remote site

Then I will return but I read on ebay it says it supports firewall stuff & aes & ipsec so I assume its ok.

one thing im not sure about is as it is not an advanced ios version that my instructions say to use but it also says that other versions maybe ok!!!

So I hope im only missing voip stuff!!!!

one thing im struggling to get a copy of is ccp admin version as wanted to practice but only have ccp end user which only allows basic stuf according to my reading!! since I have not got a cisco active account just a guest account.

if I knew where to look on ebay with ccp admin software installed then I could purchase but cannot locate.

the seller advised if not correct I can return it & pick another & they will refund as soon as they know its on route back to them.

Okay

The SDM is only a management interface as such, only provides interactive functionality (a GUI v. CLI) and not equipment functionality.  In other words, anything you do in SDM, you can do in CLI.  

The ability to build VPN's is a function of the code package itself.  If memory serves, it will be in the advanced security services package you will be looking for (or higher) based on what you are noting.  You can confirm image functionality here:

compatibility yes but you will need to check the feature register in the last link that I provided to you to determine if the package you have will include the features you are looking for.

why not just ask the seller for the package version?  It shows it in the 12.4 train, they should be able to tell you the service package they have installed.

hi yes I've received the 1841 routers & they do allow me to install sdm successfully.

when I get chance I will also use that link you sent to find out what the iOS it's using for a list of its capabilities.

it does allow me to setup a site to site VPN & 1 end comes up that I installed sdm on my xp

but for some reason on the other side where sdm is installed on my windows has stopped allowing the ping from XP to win 7 only & don't know why.

- I have reset checked VPN config & all appears good.

- I've reset all 3 routers as the middle router just acts as the middle man & both my Cisco switches attached to both co & win 7.

- I've rest firewall defaults on win 7 & re-allowed file & print to all ICMP ping

XP can also ping switch attached to win 7 successfully

I'm also using eigrp on all 3 routers & all are up/up & can ping all.

last issue:

but still ping from XP to win 7 pc is failing.

thats what I'm currently working on but ran out of ideas so that's why that VPN side of win 7 is currently showing as down.

thanks for your help


appreciated
