vpn configuration problems 2621xm and vpn client


I'm trying to configure my home cisco 2621xm to accept vpn connections. I've used many cisco pdf documents and they all same almost the same so I've done my configuration using these documents.

now I just can't get past this error message I'm getting and I have no idea why this is happening.

any ideas to help me get past this step, I'm really stuck here.

also, I've tried vpn client version 5 and 4.8

Re: vpn configuration problems 2621xm and vpn client


Can you try assigning a static ip to the dialer interface and try checking out the vpn connectivity ?


Re: vpn configuration problems 2621xm and vpn client

Hi, try to remove this statement: set identity thisrouter-01

Re: vpn configuration problems 2621xm and vpn client

this did not change a thing.

and no I can not get a static ip but I doubt it has anything to do with it.
