Dial backup VPN - preshare key issue

Answered Question

I'm using dial backups to my DSL connections in case of failure but on my host router I also use EZVPN Server for Client VPN access. As a result the the EZVPN Server uses xauth for preshare authentication:

crypto isakmp key ??????? address

BUT for my dial backup VPN to work I need to use dynamic IP for the peer IP address thus requiring:

crypto isakmp key ?????? address no xauth

I've tried configuring keys for the dial-in subnets, but it still seems to use the default.

Is this simply not supported or is there a workaround?

My host (main) router is a CISCO 1841, my remote router is 877.

You need to configure ISAKMP profiles on the Ezvpn server router.


That would do it.
