Folks, I have a 2851 router currently connected via IPSec to another site.


if I install (3) VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 cards into the 2851 (show ver shown below) to connect the router to a new MPLS network, can I still use the VPN IPsec? Or I will have to remove the VPN card in order to give me room to insert and run the (3) VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1?

Show INV will give a better display of the cards you have.


Which card that does VPN are you talking about. The only cards I have seen are called AIM and these go into connection inside the router well away from the slots on the back.


I assume you have a wic card doing your serial in one of the wic slots and 3 empty ones. You should be able to just insert these new cards in the 3 remaining ones.


Now if this is the VPN module that comes with the router you can't remove it even if you want to since it is a chip on the main board.
