Move from PIX to Cisco28

I'm moving a VPDN setup from a PIX to a Cisco2801. However, what's the equivalent commands on 2801 to the following PIX commands:

vpngroup 1 dns-server VTelEXInside VTelNTInside

vpngroup 1 split-dns

vpngroup 1 idle-time 1800

vpdn group 1 client configuration address local vpnpool

vpdn group 1 client configuration dns VTelEXCInside

vpdn group 1 client configuration wins VTelEXCInside

Moreover, can I do the local authentication on the 2801? I cannot find the commands to define the username and passwork.


Re: Move from PIX to Cisco28

Hello philips,

Are you running 12.4 in your router ? If so, please find all the VPDN commands supported by 12.4...

See if this is of help.. what exactly are you trying to configure here ? PPTP ?

Note - make sure you have the sufficient IOS to run VPDN, otherwise, u will not be able to run the commands given above.. what is the present IOS in the router ?

Hope this helps..

Re: Move from PIX to Cisco28

Yes, I'm configuring PPTP.

The IOS is 12.4, the actual output is like this:

2801 Software (C2801-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(7), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc6)

However, I cannot find the command "resource-pool profile vpdn" and "resource-pool profile customer" commands.

Should I use a PPTP server to make it running? But why the PIX can do the local authentication of the firewall.

I can use the following command to define the remote users:

vpdn username scoleman password *********

vpdn username jmrobins password *********
