Cisco pix 501 to 2 different office

Hi,

I have a pix 501, currently i have a vpn connection to the main office that has a concentrator. I have another pix at a different office servering as a DR office. This  doesn't have a concentrator. I've been told that once you established connection with a concentrator you cannot create another vpn to diffenent office uless it has a concentrator there too. Is that true?

If not how can i make it work.. Thanks

A concentrator is a hub right? No, yo do not really need to do that, 1 single vpn tunnel between the 2 office will do the trick.

No, a concentrator is probably a 30xx or 50xx series VPN box.

I've dealt with PIX-to-PIX and PIX-to-concentrator VPNs, but never a mix on the same PIX.  I can't, off the top of my head, confirm whether there's a problem doing that, but have to concede that there *could* be.
