That's simple enought but then he tells me I need to redirect all EPS and all AH traffic as well. I guess this is where FreeBSD+NATD+IPFW hits the wall when working with Cisco or is it? I gotta believe this can work but I don't know how the heck to do it and the tech at our IT consultant is totally lost when it comes to anything besides Cisco equipment.

I added some new lines to my /etc/natd.conf file and the AH part seemed ok but the console screen immediately said what the heck is EPS. And worse it did not work. Only when I put the VPN router outside of my existing router does this setup work. I really want to keep this thing inside my LAN or even better would be how do I get my existing router to work as a VPN on it's own?
When I was dealing with the Cisco VPN client, I was doing so with IPFW+natd and you need 500/udp, 4500/udp, 62515/udp, 1723/tcp, 10000/tcp, and the GRE protocol. In my case, /etc/natd.conf contained:
redirect_proto gre 10.1.1.247
redirect_port udp 10.1.1.247:500 500
redirect_port udp 10.1.1.247:4500 4500
redirect_port udp 10.1.1.247:62515 62515
redirect_port tcp 10.1.1.247:10000 10000
redirect_port tcp 10.1.1.247:pptp pptp
...to send the traffic to a VPN endpoint located at IP 10.1.1.247.
