Hello, I am looking to set up VPN access on a 2801 router however, I do not wish to use the Cisco client but would prefer to use what is built into Windows (and I also need to support Macs).

Can someone point me to some docs on how to set this up via command line? the only docs I am finding seem to rely on the SDM GUI which I don't use - something specific for the router would be great, I have seen docs for other devices.

Also, will the webvpn work with Macs? and finally, a consultant my company works with suggested that the 2801 is not suitably powerful enough to terminate several site to sites from T1 circuits and provide sufficient routing to our 10Mbps circuit and do client VPN's too - can anyone comment on this router's suitability for any of these roles?

The problem with the WEBVPN is that it uses the central CPU and not the VPN accelerator. VPN accelerator supports only the IPSec VPNs. With 2801 router I reached 8-9Mbit/s throughput over a 10Mbit/s line, the CPU usage was near 70-80%.

I only found conf guide for 2600 series:



Please rate me if I helped.
