Do I need a security license to setup VPN on router?

Hi All.

I'm trying to setup VPN connections on 2 different routers and I'm not sure about that Do I need a security license to setup VPN connection on router?

First one is 1941-K9 site-to-site.

Second one is 887G-K9, EasyVPN connection.

Both of them don't work properly. What do I need to check on both routers to see if they're abled for vpn connection, maybe some commands as well.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Re: Do I need a security license to setup VPN on router?

yes, for VPN you need a security-license.

The 1941 should show the following line:

rtr-01#sh ver | b Technology

Technology Package License Information for Module:'c1900'

----------------------------------------------------------------

Technology    Technology-package          Technology-package

              Current       Type          Next reboot 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

ipbase        ipbasek9      Permanent     ipbasek9

security      securityk9    Permanent     securityk9

data          None          None          None

The 887 comes by default with the "Advanced Security" feature-set. That's all you need for that device.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, 1941 doesn't show that, everything NONE there, so will get license then.

And 887G probably has some errors in configuration. EasyVPN connects to remote site (887G) and it shows 3 VLANs but I can ping only router and not other devices.

For the VPN-Problems you should open a new topic and share you config and problem-description there.
