We find classical solutions to the simply-laced affine Toda equations which satisfy integrable boundary conditions using solitons which are analytically continued from imaginary coupling theories. Both static `vacuum' configurations and time-dependent perturbations about them which correspond respectively to classical vacua and particle scattering solutions are considered. A large class of classical scattering matrices are calculated and found to satisfy the reflection bootstrap equation.
