I bought this router to set up an ipsec tunnel to Amazon's Virtual Private Cloud. The router works fine for that purpose, but purchasing it was an ordeal.

I initially purchased it via Amazon from another vendor who shall remain nameless for reasons I will explain later. The first router was a Cisco CISCO881-SEC-K9 88 Advance IP Services Router. The box and the sparse documentation indicated this model. But the license for the embedded software had "-NPE" appended to the designation. The "NPE" stands for "No Payload Encryption." You may not know what this means. I certainly didn't.

Here it is: Universal images with the universalk9_npe" designation in the image name: The strong enforcement of encryption capabilities provided by Cisco Software Activation satisfies requirements for the export of encryption capabilities. However, some countries have import requirements that require that the platform does not support any strong crypto functionality such as payload cryptography. To satisfy the import requirements of those countries, the `npe' universal image does not support any strong payload encryption.

I hasten to add the these countries do not include the United States where both the seller and buyer are located in this case.

Or in other words, the router is totally useless for setting up an ipsec tunnel to Amazon or anyone else.

I notified the original vendor that they had sold me a crippled router, certainly not designed for use in the United States, but rather for some benighted places which deny their subjects the use of decent encryption. After a little hemming and hawing, the original vendor agreed to accept the return.

This is "entry level" of quite modest performance but is nevertheless a full-fledged IOS-based Cisco router with a substantial feature set. It is ideal for my purpose, which is to "learn IOS". I felt I was ready for this after many years in the software-IT field.

My 881 came with installed software image file "c880data-universalk9-mz.150-1.M1.bin", version 15.0(1)M1. While not the very latest, this is a serviceable version with full IPv6 support (one of my prerequisites). The other specs (from a "show version" command) are:

Cisco 881 (MPC8300) processor (revision 1.0) with 236544K/25600K bytes of memory.

5 FastEthernet interfaces
1 Virtual Private Network (VPN) Module
256K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
126000K bytes of ATA CompactFlash (Read/Write)

License Information for 'c880-data'
License Level: advipservices Type: Permanent

I'd recommend the Windows application MobaXterm for your console device. I'd been using it for an ssh and tftp client, but it also features a terminal emulator for your serial interface. Connecting to the 881 console port was a plug-and-play operation using the blue cable that came in the box.

With the help of my recently acquired experience using the CLI of the Vyatta-based EdgeRouter (along with, I suppose, years of experience working with general computer networking), I was able to configure a standard IPv4 NAT internet gateway the next day after receiving the 881. Cisco provides an enormous quantity of online IOS-oriented documentation, freely viewable or downloadable, and a reasonable user forum for Q&A.

It appears this model remains a workhorse in some real-world networking environments. It also serves as an excellent learning base for Cisco IOS.

With the added Security and Advanced IP extensions from Cisco, this little guy right here has all the features of its bigger siblings. It supports very strong encryption through IPSec VPN tunneling, you can even run a Cisco EasyVPN server so no matter where you are in the world you can have a 7Mbps connection to your remote location that encrypts everything you do online; to help protect personal information from eavesdropping, identify theft, and corporate espionage. You can establish a dynamic (BGP) hardware VPN tunnel to your Amazon Web Service's Virtual Private Cloud to gain access to isolated cloud resources, or you can access your remote network from your BlackBerry's built-in EasyVPN client and create a tethered network connection for on-the-go - military grade - security, unlike those darned insecure ispyphones. If you don't need or want any of these features, you can simply lock down any features you don't use for additional security to limit your attack surface from the outside world; or just go with the 861 version and save a few bucks.
