PIX 506e VPN Tunnel based on OSPF Routes

I have a PIX 506e in a remote office that has OSPF capabilities. The endpoint is a VPN 3000 concentrator on my corporate network that is transfering the OSPF routes to the PIX.

Is it possible to build a VPN tunnel on the PIX based on the learned OSPF routes? Or do I have to tunnel everything, including internet traffic, back to the concentrator and let the concentrator make the routing decisions? If I have to tunnel everything back, I will not bother setting up OSPF on the PIX.

What do you think?

Hi mousers,
Personally I would not use OSPF on the PIX unless your network is so large that defining static routes would be a problem.

Have a look at this configuration example as it deals with passing ospf routing across a VPN.

I'll take a look.

Yes, my Corporate LAN is hooked into a larger Corporate Intranet (the people who own us) and there are too many routes to define statically.
I have been adding static routes up to now but it is getting unmanagable.
