Describe the Easy VPN Server

As mentioned in the beginning of this chapter, Easy VPN is a client/server product that allows for simplified VPN connectivity with branch offices, remote offices, and remote users. The server portion of this product is called Cisco Easy VPN Server and is a component first introduced in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(8)T. The client component installs on Cisco routers designed for remote office/home office (ROHO) use; Cisco PIX 500 series Firewall; the 3000 series VPN devices; the 800, 1700, 2600, 3620, 3640, 7100, 7200, and 7500 series routers; and the Cisco VPN client software (version 3.x). The functionality that makes Easy VPN "easy" is that it allows the client to connect with the server and download its VPN configuration. This precludes the requirement of configuring each client endpoint for the VPN. Figure 22-1 depicts how Easy VPN would be used by the New York headquarters to provide secure connectivity to its branch offices, remote offices, and remote users.
