*Newbie* Site to Site vpn problem


I am new to the world of VPN.

I have a 2811 connected via the net to a VPN conncentrator.

Good news is VPN is up and working, 'UP-ACTIVE'.

How do I check that the routing is working? in respect of my LAN packets being recieved by the VPN conncentrator once the VPN tunnels is up and working.

I have a route to the VPN peer - ip route x.x.x.16 f0/0

Another route to the remote network on the other side on VPN conncentrator -

ip address x.x.x.16.

I have been told the static should have a next-hop of the peer. Is this correct?

How can I check when I try to ping a device it is being encrypted? and reaches the vpn conncentrator

Issue the command show crypto isakmp SA.

When the encrypt and decrypt counters increase, packet are encrypted.

You can also do a show ACL for the ACL you use to define traffic to encrypt. See if hits are increasing.
