pix to pix vpn question

I've done several router to router vpn tunnels but never pix to pix.
Usually to test vpn connectivity from router to router I do an extended ping.


Is there something similar I can do on a pix to send ipsec traffic from one to the other?

You need a PC on each end to ping each other. There is nothing on the PIX like the extended ping that would help you.

It does not necessarily have to be a PC, a switch or anything else will do, as long as they have the appropriate routing to the remote network pointing to the PIX.

Would I be able to say, ping the inside ip address of one pix from a workstation behind the other?  Or would it have to be workstation to workstation?

It has to be workstation to workstation. By PIX design, you can never ping the inside interface from any outside source or vice versa you can never ping the outside interface from an inside source.

You might try adding the public IP of each PIX in the crypto match acl while testing. That might allow you to ping pix-pix
