I'm networking beginner
I have a remote site without any servers and a Cisco 861 that has and IPsec VPN tunnel back to the main office. I get an alert that it's offline via a ping test. Yesterday this happened and I just power cycled the unit and they were back up in a few minutes.
It happened again this morning (approx. 15 hours later) so I investigated further:
- LEDs look ok (WAN is blinking a bit)
- Can't ping inside interface via the LAN
- Unable to connect to console
- Power cycled
- Console connection displays the boot process and everything is back to normal after it boots up.
If I can't even connect to the console to review where should I start? I have a desktop PC that could collect syslog info but I wouldn't think that would be helpful given the problem accessing the console. There are only 10 users connecting to the router.
