What VPN Router for CISCO1841-HSEC/K9

We have a CISCO1841-HSEC/K9 which will have a T1WIC in the near future. I have experience with the 1721 models. We have another location that has a cable 1.5 connection and we would like to make a persistant VPN connection from the 1841 here at corporate(which I think has the security bundle - does this include VPN?) What router can I purchase on the other end to make this happen without breaking the budget. Will a 1721 do the trick? Are there any known documents to show how to make this happen?

Thanks all!

Re: What VPN Router for CISCO1841-HSEC/K9


If the 1841 has the security bundle (and K9 in the image name usually means that it does) then it should have support for configuring an IPSec VPN. I have done IPSec VPN on 1841s and they work well. I have also done IPSec VPN on 1721s and they have worked well. Of course you would need a feature set on each router that supports IPSec VPNs. It is also advantageous to have the VPN accelerator in each of the routers but that is not a requirement.

This link should be a good one to get you started in understanding how to configure the IPSec VPN between routers:
