David,


The crypto runs strictly in the switch. Having the crypto IOS allows you to establish a secure connection to the switch Via SSH, or HTTPS. The crypto image does not perform encryption to your actual data.

You will need another router with a crypto IOS to create a VPN encrypted tunnel between the two routers. The switch is unable to perform VPN encryption.

Hi - Thanks for the info. I have another issue with my switch and lan setup. My client computer needs to send the data across our network to connect to a vendor router. He wants to have it encrypted. Do you have any suggestions? I am going to setup "protected ports"(no forwarding of info) and "port security"(port set to mac address). This isn't encryption. Thanks - Dave

With your current setup I don't believe it can be done in a hardware configuration. Your best bet would be use a third party SSH tunneling software between the clients. I've never used this before but the only thing that came to mind.


HTH,
