Which version of IOS would be best?

Answered Question
Jan 13th, 2009

Hi all

I'd like to setup a Cisco 2811 router to provide site-site VPN between this router and a PIX 515 firewall. Just wanted to know which version of IOS would be best suited for the job plus 802.1Q and BGP routing features. I've configred site-site VPN before on 1800 and 800 series routers but just wanted to know whether there are additional stuff that I would need to configure on 2811 or not. Thanks.

I have this problem too.

thanks for the reply. I wonder if the IOS c2800nm-spservicesk9-mz.124-19.bin would do the job or not? That's the version that I have for the other 2811 routers.

It should meet your requirements , most if not all k9 images do support Ipsec for L2Ls. Your spservices image do also have do1q and BGPv4 support.
