      Goto the Cisco CLI and type:

      crypto isakmp struggle disable

      But seriously, is there any particular issue you are having, such as an error message, or some configuration option?

      Been using it for about a decade or so for SOME remote log in needs. Simple, free (for the most part), works well, stable, does all I need it too.

      www DOT realvnc DOT com

      Piece of cake to set up and configure, literally a few minutes,

      I started using it when I needed access to update a remote server once a week and didn't want full time server management from my desktop. Works like a hot damn!

      There are many devices out there that can accommodate this need for you. The Realvnc option would involve some port forwarding in your firewall device. It looks like your device is capable of VPN configuration on its own.

      Is this configuration of your CISCO beyond your expertise? If so you may want to hire a professional. In our pfsense days, we would typically hand a VPN device (like a sonic wall VPN) off of the main pfsense router. Then your router is just passing VPN traffic to the specific VPN device.

      Of course deffinately a VNC software solution would do the trick. I would recomend a configuration where you were only allowing VNC traffic from very specific IP's if possible, rather than leaving it up to a user and password alone.
