Hi Stephen,

thanks for the reply.

I managed to configure the router using cli (Easy vpn) but i still need to spend some time to make sure i understand all the commands fully.

One question that i want to ask (i asked this in another topic and not got an answer) is the difference in implementation of a remote access user . i mean i have seen it being configured using VPDN and cisco easy vpn !!! which one is the prefered way to go.

on more thing.

i managed to configure the router and i can connect to it using cisco VPN client but windows VPN connection will not connect. any ideas on this?

Also, please can someone tell me the commands (and give brief explanation) that i need to configure so that i can use some usernames-passwords for remote access-VPN (i want these names to be able to connect to Easy VPN but not login on router.)

i include my current configuration.
