Two Cisco Routers on Same Lan

                   I am planning to add a second router to my network. I currently have a Cisco 841 which is running great no issues no down time solid.

My only issue with the 841 is that I can not VPN into my network remotely using 1. Native VPN client on Windows based computers. Windows 7 , Vista and XP. 2. Ipad's and Iphones also cannot VPN in. Only way to VPN is from the Cisco client on the Windows platform. No such app exists for the Ipad or Iphone.

     So I am looking into getting a Cisco ASA5505 and add it to my network.

I could then remove the VPN services from my 841 and use the ASA5505 for all VPN traffic.


     1. Would I need to have another static ip address?

     2. Can I just forward all VPN traffic thru the 841 to the ASA5505?

ip nat inside source static tcp 1792 interface FastEthernet4 1792

ip nat inside source static tcp 1723 interface FastEthernet4 1723

ip nat inside source static udp 1701 interface FastEthernet4 1701

ip nat inside source static udp 500 interface FastEthernet4 500 would be the new ASA5505 router?

Would be nice if the 841 would work using PPTP but I believe it only supports IPsec

All ideas, answers and or suggestions are welcome.

OK I see no replies.

Then does anyone know of a model cisco that will do VPN for PPTP and IPSEC?

Need to have IPAD's Iphones and PC's using native VPN to access.

One router would be nice
