Hi,

I would like to monitor (remotely) a Cisco PIX 515 and especially all VPN connection to some remote DSL routers. Anyone know how to do that, which software/hardware to use, etc.? I need to know information like up-time, problems, isdn-backup situations (when and how long), notification of course by e-mail/.., just as much information as possible.

Thanks.

You can get a lot of that from the Pix Device Manager GUI with web browser connection to the PIX.
If you have PIX 6.3x and PDM 3.01 you get the uptime/bandwidth utilization, number of outbounds, VPN connections, etc right on the home page.
You'll need a 3d party application to monitor uptime to send email alerts
There is no ISDN backup on a PIX.
Suggest setting up SNMP and use a monitor program like What's Up Gold from IPSwitch..

You can get 30-day eval download. You can set it up to monitor network devices and send you an email if something goes down.
