Hi there!
ON HQ, i've a CISCO2901-SEC/K9 router.

but for one branch, i'm looking for model CISCO1921/K9

does this model, with ip base IOS that comes by default, support IPSEC so i could create site to site VPN with HQ.

if not, what can i do if i pickup such model, to upgrade it's IOS?

It's the security (SEC)

It's the security (SEC) license - not the IOS image - that's required to  support VPN on any of the ISR or ISR G2 family of routers that includes both of these products.

A security license can be purchased from any authorized Cisco reseller.

How does this security

How does this security license (SEC) cost aproximately???

so, regarding my 1st question....but default, the router CISCO1921/K9,  will not support VPN with IPSEC, right?

The "Security License for

The "Security License for Cisco 1900" part number SL-19-SEC-K9 has a list price of US$1000.

If the need is identified when buying a new router, it is usually sold as part of a bundle and the cost delta is less than that.

In either case, actual costs varies per your local reseller.

Without the SEC license active, the commands necessary to confiure VPN with IPsec are not available.
