Cisco 2821 router IOS and Ipsec

Hi all.I was wondering can you create VPN tunnels using Ipsec on a 2821 router if you have only the IPBASE image(the basic image 2821 router comes with) on the router or do you need some other version of IOS?

I've gone totally nuts trying to find out but can't seem to find an answer.Thanks in advance.

You can not create IPSec tunnels if the 2821 is running the IP BASE image. You need a feature set that supports crypto to do IPSec. In general image names that include k9 in the image name will support crypto. You probably would want the Advanced Security feature set or the Advanced IP Services feature set, both of which do support crypto and do support IPSec tunnels.

The answer would be no again. You would have to get advance enterprise or advance security for your VPN support.

Use the feature navigator to find yourself a suitable IOS for your platform.

And one another quick question.Can IPBASE image for 2821 router support any sort of VPN for the purposes of users connecting from remote locations to the core network?
