VPN Migration

Hello All, I have been tasked with moving a private p-to-p Frame Relay Network to a VPN solution. I have done the req's analysis on our current equipment in order to position for the migration (at this point with bandwidth req's we are going with a software based encryption solution-LAN TO LAN). Current termination on the remote node end is 2620's: req's look like two IP Plus Feature set upgrades(PL26-P & FL26-P-K2)/mem upgrade/IOS Firewall Feature set(FL26-H). Current HQ 7206VXR: req looks like IPSEC 3DES upgrade (FL72-K2)/mem upgrade/IOS Firewall Feature Set (FL72-H). Is there anyone with A-Z implementation experience with VPN's that may be of assistance, I have a conceptual understanding of the technology and the pieces of the puzzle...this will be my first hands-on with VPN's. A useful document/book/site that covers the configuration steps (IPSEC,tunnels int, encryption, NAT, etc...)in order to properly implement, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hello Frank,

If you don't get a suitable response to your post, you may wish to speak with a design engineer at your local Cisco office or reseller. You can locate your local Cisco representative from this URL:

Although it goes much deeper than just cryptography, there is a Cisco publication worth reading called Designing Network Security (ISBN# 1578700434). You might prefer Enhanced IP Services for CISCO Networks: A Practical Resource for Deploying Quality of Service, Security, IP Routing, and VPN Services (ISBN# 1578701066). (Both of these are available online through Cisco Marketplace at as well as many major bookstores.)

If anyone else in the forum has experience with a similar design and implimentation, please reply to this thread.

Thank you for posting.

Re: VPN Migration

Thank you for responding, I will check into the links you have provided. I found a good book "Implementing Cisco VPNs" from McGraw Hill Publishers that has been a great source of information, I feel it has filled in most of the blanks for me. Again, I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
