PIX 506e vpn config


I have a home based pix 506e connected over adsl. I've currently got a basic pix setup comprising of dhcp & nat/pat for inside hosts, and access lists restricting all but outside dns & web traffic.

I am looking to setup a VPN tunnel to an outside host. I want to use ipsec & des with possibly the pix providing authentication (I have no tacacs or radius server). Also I am trying to setup the client without the cisco vpn client.
I have read up on cisco vpns but as its such a large topic with various configurations, I am getting a bit lost. Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards,

Hi hotdiggetydawg,
I am confused to what you want.
Do you want an outside client to connect via VPN to your network via the PIX?
Or do you want to create a LAN-LAN VPN between your PIX and another Firewall?
Or do you want to run the windows built in client on your machine and connect to a Windows VPN server?

Sorry, it'll be a windows outside client to connect via VPN to your network via the PIX.
If you want to use the windows built in client you will need to use PPTP.

In order to use IPSEC you will need to use the Cisco client.

This is a good configuration example:-
The lines beninning with 'isakmp', 'crypto' and 'sysopt connection permit-ipsec' are for IPSEC while the other lines in bold are for PPTP.
With PPTP you create lots of local username/password pairs. For IPSEC you can have a single local group (as in the example) but also enable local authentication which is not detailed in this example.
