Testing ISA 2004 with Netscreen

Hi,
I need to setup a site to site ipsec (pre shared key) tunnel between my compamy and one of our suppliers. We are running MS ISA 2004, they are running Netscreen (screenOS 3.1)

Before i contact them to initiate testing, i would like to test the site to site link myself.

Can anybody give me advice on how to set up a aite to site link in a lab?

Would i need 2 ISA severs, or can i use 1 server and 1 workstation?

I read somewhere, for ISA and Netscreen to connect, ISA needs to initiate the tunnell, hwo would i get ISA to do this?

Thanks for your help.
Paul

the tunnel is initiated by whomever tries to connect first as far as netscreens are concerened.

if you want the ISA server to initiate send the traffic from there first :)\


You can also create a preshare key with the software NSR (netscreen remote) client. so you can vpn from your computer ( or any NSR client) to the vpn as long as you have it set up correctly. use can test the preshare with that.

I can't help with the ISA... sorry.

hope it helps/
