When I go to the Wizard I select:


* Remote Acesss > VPN Tunnel Interface (Outside) + Enable Inbounf IPsec session to bypass interace access list

* Cisco VPN Client, Release 3.x or Higher

* Pre-shared Key (Typed in a random password) + Tunnel Group Name = VPNNAME

* Authenticate using local user database

* Created users

* Enter a pool  (this where it gets trickey, do i just create a range withing my local lan ip block?)

* Attributes Pushed to clients(Do I need to fill this out? it said optional)

* IKE Policy (does it matter what i put) I have Encyption DES, 3DES, AES- 128/192/256||Authentication MD5 or SHA and Diffie-Hellman group 1,2 or 5

* IPsec Setting (optinal) Do I nee to fill this out? it has Enable Perfect Forwarding Secrecy enabled

Hello Wil,

Perfect Forward Secrecy  is optional( used to make sure the same key is never used again) , so you can decide whether to use it or not.

Are u able to connect?
