A client has a VPN between 2 offices in different cities using Nortel 221 Contivity appliances. The original installer is no longer around (nor is Nortel) and I cannot seem to get my hands on the Contivity Configuration Manager to access the VPN settings. Simple VPN requirement, any suggestions out there?
Thanks....

You should be able to get to the VPN settings via the built-in web GUI if you have access to it.  I don't have a 221 around any more to check where the config is on the box.

Hi paulray and welcome to the forums!

As @Telair mentions you can use the web based GUI to configure the VPN router. Just point your browser to the IP address of the VPN router, example http://192.168.1.1

People only utilized the Contivity Configuration Manager if they had hundreds of VPN routers to manage and monitor.

Cheers!
