Posted on 2004-10-28

Hello, i already have a PIX to PIX solution. Now remote users wants to connect to the pix (506E) too.

We have PIX client 4.0.1 I will be using the following doc provided by Mr lrmoore (the one and only)

This will not in anyway cause the pix to pix to stop working?

No for the question regarding the documetation that i posted here.

It says accesslist 101 here too  but i will just put 102 right?

Is there anything is should think about regarding the vpn client to pix solution compared to the pix to pix solution?

This is the link to the doc i used setting up the pix to pix

Thank you all

    No it should not cause the pix to pix VPN to stop working as long as you apply the correct configuration ;)

    You can call the access list whatever you like. It would be probably better to use a name rather than a number to make the configuration more readable.

    With a client to VPN setup the client will have access to everything on the local network. You could use split-tunneling to limit access to particular machines.
    If you want to have full ACL support and limit what each user has access to then you need to use a Radius server to issue ACL's to the users VPN session. See my website for an example:-
