I've got a new PIX 515 firewall device installed. There are 2 users right now who PCAnywhere through it into their office machines. I'd like to set it up so that they have to establish a VPN before they connect with PCAnywhere.

One user is on XPpro, dialing in to her local ISP.

The other user is on 2k pro, connected to an ISP by a router and cable modem.

I've been reading the documentation until my eyes bleed. Can someone tell me in English how to set this up? I've never needed to use PPTP or IPSec before, so I'm starting pretty much at basic level.

Thanks!

Here is a link to some good documentation and example configs for VPN:
http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/browse/psp_view.pl?p=Hardware:PIX&s=Software_Configuration

For a newbie to PIX, try attempting to walk through the VPN wizard in the PDM. If you take a snapshot of your config before and after you can see the changes it makes.

Good Luck

Cisco documentation isn't the easiest to read, but I plowed my way through and got it set up.

Thanks!
