Hi All,
I have a Cisco 3620 connected to a T-1 which we are using for 33k baud
modem dial in. Once dialed in , a PPP connection is made and an ip
address is assigned. There are 5 people that use this dial in once in a
while for only short times. We would like to ( we wish/hope ) use our
cable internet connections to get on our network instead of the very
slow modems. I have read that the 3620 can do VPN. The problem is I
dont know where to start or what the best practices are for setting up
VPNs. I am going to be taking some courses in Sept. but I also would
like any sites or books that explain VPN from the ground up. Any help
is greatly appreciated.

I'm just starting to look at this, but I think you'd need to set up a tunnel
between your end users and your 3620 using IPSec.

Look at http://www.howstuffworks.com/vpn.htm and
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/cc/pd/rt/2600/prodlit/kaos_ds.htm and
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/vpn/client/user_gd/vc2.htm
for starters. Like I said I just started looking at this so there may be
better resources.

I really like the Enhanced IP Services for Cisco Networks by Donald
Lee. If you can wait a couple weeks my book will be available too.
