Hi there,

I need to be able to create an IPsec site-to-site VPN with either a 2600 or a 3600.  Niether of the routers I have seem to support it with the version of IOS they are running.  Can I download a version that does or do I need to buy it from Cisco.  Could someone point me in the right direction?

many thanks

You need IOS that support crypto.  I guess both your routers don't have enough memory.  It would also recommended that both routers have AIM-VPN cards or you'll sacrifice CPU for the encryption.  Finally, how many VPN tunnels do you have in mind and what throughput are you designing?
