IPrism Placement

I have used the IPrism filter for sometime and have just recently gone from an ISA firewall to a PIX.  I am looking for advice as to the best placement of my IPrism.  I have a Cisco 2600 router connected to the external interface of my PIX and the internal interface of the PIX connected to a 3750.  Should I place the IPrism between the 3750 and the PIX for best performance?

Your best bet will be to place the iPrism in-line right smack between the PIX inside interface and the 3750.
Use a crossover cable between the iPrism and the  PIX, and a standard patch cable between the iPrism and the switch.

On this same note: I have an IPrism and remote offices connected by to Headquarters via VPN tunnels. Any thoughts on using that same IPrism to perform URL filtering for both the HQ and remote offices?

Each remote site has PIX 501 and HQ has PIX 506. The remote office are using VPN tunnels into a Cisco Concentrator 3005.

If the VPN 3005 has its own public IP, then yes, you can route all remote traffic through the 3005, through the iPrism, then back out through the HQ PIX 506.
