VPN Encryption Module

Hi

Show version on router shows this output, but we didnt purchase VPN Encryption Module.

Why it shows 2 VPN Module,If I get VPN module how to move the encryption from software to hardware.

Are there any tools to check difference between software and hardware encryption for Cisco 2851Box

Cisco 2851 (revision 22.50) with 249856K/12288K bytes of memory.
Processor board ID FCZ3313122Y
2 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
2 Virtual Private Network (VPN) Modules
DRAM configuration is 64 bits wide with parity enabled.
239K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
62720K bytes of ATA CompactFlash (Read/Write)

Configuration register is 0x2102

Re: VPN Encryption Module

I believe that the most clear way to understand precisely what is in the router for encryption modules is to use the command show crypto engine brief. The output here clearly shows both the optional VPN module AIM-VPN/SSL1 in slot0 and the built in module Onboard-VPN (in location onboard 0).

Re: VPN Encryption Module

The 2800 series router comes with a VPN module built in and your show version is pretty clear that this router has the second optional module. You could use the show diag command to see more details about the VPN module.

When the VPN module is present the OS automatically move the encryption from software to hardware. There is not a need for specific commands to activate it.

Re: VPN Encryption Module

I was curious about this issue, so I looked at one of our 2821's with the security bundle in it.  Sure enough, it shows in the output of SHOW VERSION that there are two VPN modules.  However, in the output of SHOW DIAG I only see one VPN module in slot 0.

I then checked this document.  https://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/2800/hardware/installation/guide/10_hw.html#wp1109723

In the section on verifying the AIM installation, the output of SHOW VERSION shows that there is only one VPN module.

It also says in several places the following stipulation:
Cisco 2811, Cisco 2821, and Cisco 2851 routers have two AIM connectors—AIM slot 0 and AIM slot 1. You can install a virtual private network (VPN) encryption AIM or a voice-mail AIM in either slot, but not in both slots. You can install voice and data compression AIMs and ATM AIMs in both slots.

Re: VPN Encryption Module

Post the full "show diag" here.

You can edit SN # if worried about that.

There are "show crypto" commnds that tell you which HW is being used.

Re: VPN Encryption Module

Hi Paolo,

If I read this correctly, the router has TWO (2) AIM-VPN, is this correct?
