What are the exact configuration changes necessary to allow a Check Point SecureClient to connect to a VPN while behind a PIX 501? Or before the question can be answered what info do I need.
SecureClient gives me 2 NAT traversal mechanisms
1) Support IKE over TCP
2) Force UDP Encapsulation

Pix Version 6.3(1)
PDM Version 3.0(1)
Inside Interface 139.126.X.X
Outside Interface PPPoE (66.220.x.x)

1) upgrade PIX to 6.3(3) to enable nat-traversal
2) use the command "isakmp nat-traversal 20"
3) set client to force UDP encap (requires configuration on the Check Point end to allow this)

Alternative to upgrading:
1) Create a static 1-1 nat map using a spare public IP
2) set client for either TCP or UDP (depending on how the Check Point end is set up)

If you have another public IP that you can use besides the interface, you can do this:

static (inside,outside) <public IP> <private ip> netmask 255.255.255.255

ie.

static (inside,outside) 24.56.78.9 192.168.100.100 netmask 255.255.255.255
