Here is my question. I have an 1811 being installed at the office and a 871 being installed in a home office for my supervisor. I need to create a lan to lan vpn between the two so my boss can always log on to the network at work. I have a ton of examples of how to do this and I am trying to test them out, but when I configure the routers none of them are working. I am trying to test them in a back to back router configuration with the two outside ethernet interfaces connected using a crossover cable. I know when you connect using serial interfaces you needed to set the clock rate, but that is not an option for ethernet. Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong, or help me come up with a usable way to test the two routers please? I know I am probably doing something very stupid and that is why i need help.
Thank you very much for your help
