Security Device Manager

I downloaded SDM to help me configure a site to site vpn. I tried loading versions:

25

241

232

Basicly everything on the download page. I get:

"The router model is unsupported by SDM"

Can I not use SDM with my router?

Cisco 2621 <---no it is not XM

c2600-ik9o3s3-mz.122-15.T10.bin

Re: Security Device Manager

I wonder if I wasted my time on this 2621 by upgrading the ram, IOS, installing AIM vpn/bp card in to try and do site to site VPNS. Am I wasting my time?

Re: Security Device Manager

You can still configure VPN using CLI.

In your original post you seem to indicate that this is the IOS code in your router:

c2600-ik9o3s3-mz.122-15.T10.bin

If this is really the IOS that you are running, then Leo is right that you can configure VPN site to site using the CLI since this version of IOS does include support for crypto and for IPSec VPN.

and in this case I do not believe that you have wasted your time. In fact by the time you get IPSec VPN site to site to work from the CLI you will have learned much more than you would have if SDM had worked for you.

Re: Security Device Manager

i agreed with rburts. you ll learn a lot more using the CLI. it brings some kind of flexibility and skills you would not get using SDM.

Re: Security Device Manager

Cisco has, in the last 4 years, used SDM as to encourage new converts to Cisco equipments. Unfortunately, SDM is well-known to be CPU and memory hungry (to your appliance), slow and not as feature rich as the CLI.

You'll learn alot more, quicker using CLI than SDM.

Hi Wesley,

The above post are correct in that the 2600 none XM will not run SDM. However they will do site-to-site VPN just fine. Here is a link to a config that I know works with site-to-site.
