Re: Router 837

Based on the K9O3Y6-M code in the image identification it tells us that the feature set does support VPN. I do not know what the limitations are of the 837 but when I look at the 837 data sheet I see one reference that says that it can support 10 IPSec VPN tunnels. And I see another reference that if you use the Easy VPN Server feature that it can support 5 remote clients.

If you want to back up the config of the router the easiest and most efficient method is probably to log in to the router enable mode, do a show run, copy the output and paste it into a document on your PC. There are other methods but I believe this is most easy and efficient.

The easy way to return the router to its factory defaults is to log in to the router enable mode, enter the command erase startup-config. After the command completes turn off power to the router. When you turn power back on the router should return to factory defaults.
