Hello- I've been put in charge of something I've never done before and was wondering if anyone could help. What I'm doing is trying to connect a 871 router (with advipservices) to our existing VPN router to get a new remote office to work. I've got a little networking background, but most of my experience is in the extreme world, so I'm a little green when it comes to Cisco stuff. Anyway, the current VPN router is up and it has four VPN's going to it (see command below) sh crypto isakmp sa IPv4 Crypto ISAKMP SA dst src state conn-id slot status 136.x.x.x 206.x.x.x QM_IDLE 1011 0 ACTIVE 136.x.x.x 208.x.x.x QM_IDLE 1005 0 ACTIVE 136.x.x.x 97.x.x.x QM_IDLE 1001 0 ACTIVE 136.x.x.x 216.x.x.x QM_IDLE 1006 0 ACTIVE I'm trying to add a new VPN from a new DSL connection. The phone company came and installed the DSL on Friday and I was able to assign it a static address we got from the phone company and get on the internet. I've been fiddling around with the config settings and have gotten to the point where I was able to ping internal network address by IP but not by name (and our Cisco IP phones weren't working), but now I've managed to mess all that up. Anyway, I've got all of the other configs and I'm trying to figure out where I'm going wrong, but would anyone be able to guide me in the right direction. Right now, when I'm on the new VPN and I do a sh crypto isakmp sa, I get the proper destination and source, but a MM_NO_STATE under the status. I can post some config files tomorrow but any help or at least direction would be greatly appreciated.

I didn't know whether to place this in here or in the IP telephony section. Anyway, we recently had some lightning damage a switch. It's in a little used building (four computers, two phones) so instead of replacing it with the same switch (Catalyst 29xx series), I did a little research and found the SF-300-24 should be able to do the same thing for much cheaper. Anyway, I was a little surprised when I got the switch and couldn't do much from the command line. Here's a snippet of my config from the old router... interface FastEthernet 0/1 switchport access vlan 2 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q switchport mode trunk switchport voice vlan 2 (other ports same) interface vlan1 ip address 188.8.131.52 255.255.252.0 no ip directed-broadcast no ip-route cache Anyway, I am trying to get the new switch to work and I'm having trouble getting the ip phones to work. I've given all ports access to VLAN 1 (default) and VLAN 2 which is the vlan our core router uses for the ip phone network. Using a Cisco 7940 phone (along with Cisco Unified CM version 184.108.40.20601-1). When I plug a computer into the new switch (which I've programmed to use the same ip as the old switch), I'm able to browse internet, access network, etc. However, when I plug a phone in, it constantly says "Configuring IP" - it's not grabbing any of the correct settings (ip address is in the 100.234.8.x and not in the 100.234.5.x that phones should be getting). TFTP server is blank (should be 220.127.116.11) and default router shows the gateway and not what other phones are grabbing (18.104.22.168). Any ideas? Thanks, Brent
