Setting VPN is seck9 License is good enough for - which you already did evaluation right to use. - by default only get 500 Mbps aggregated throughput.

For Permanent you need to buy a License to to retain the License.

if you looking more throughput you need to buy throughput License.

Note : IOS XE 16.9.X onwards smart License so you need to use smart License to active the License.

      - Should  be sufficient ( securityk9), as per https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/routers/access/sw_activation/SA_on_ISR.html
         Use the command Router(config)#license accept end user agreement
         too.

Thanks @marce1000 for your advice. the existing license is evaluation license, right? for permanent use, we still need to buy a securek9 license, right ?
