I am the systems admin for my company. We have need for our external sales reps to access our home network via the internet globally. A couple of months ago, I was reading documentation of Cisco routers and it appeared the 1720 was capable of standalone vpn access. What I mean is the vpn connection could be independent of the physical connection of any ISP. Did I mis-interpret this? I have been attempting to configure this router as a termination point for vpn connections without success. I have a good background in networking and have been able to establish vpn connections via NT with PPTP, but this not my preferred access. I recommended the 1720 to my company for the ability to do l2tp and incorporate the VPN module for faster
encrytion and decryption, but I am about ready to pull it out. I have been thru your website extensively for help as well as the documentation set that came with the router but to little avail? The version of the IOS is 12.0(3)T. Any ideas as to waht I need to do next or what I may be failing to do? If necessary, I can send my configs for evaluation. I wish to start with a simple configuration of just getting the users connected. Thanks for any help!
