VPN Client TCP connection to IOS router

Answered Question

I am trying to get a VPN client to connect via TCP to a router. I currently have the router set up (and working) using a UDP-VPN. Unfortunately one of the sites I visit wont allow VPN traffic out of their firewall. I have looked all over the Cisco site and am unable to find info on configuring IOS to accept TCP-VPN connections. I would like to change the port to tcp 80, so my VPN traffic just looks like standard internet browsing to my clients firewall. Any links/pointer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Kudos to you Ferrukh!!! Thanks for the quick response!

The cTCP command solved my problem and now I can VPN from anywhere! WoooHoooo!!! I have been looking for this command off&on for about 4 months... I should have posted long ago.

Thanks for your help!
