Hi There

I have had a 128K ISDN modem installed at work and the same installed at home

I want to be able to dial into our network from hom in order to work and so on...

Does this work like a normal login like I am at work? Will i have the same right tied to my username at home as i have at work?

I realize the security risk in this with regards to virus's and all, it will be a direct connection to work from home and only i have access to this facility.


If i ask my service provider to assign me a static IP can i setup IPSEC on my firewall to allow only that IP?

If so, How?

I have a cisco pix 501, does this support IPSEC termination? if so, please supply the command line for me to enable this!

What would you recommend?

Okay... Wow lots of question... :)

First off yes you can connect.

You can do it several ways depending on the access you want to obtain.

1. VPN between your office an home.

2. Get VPN client software to connect from your home computer to your PIX 501, not sure if that is standard with your 501 or not.

Well if you decide to go the VPN route you will need ot setup strings (passwords to make the netowkr connection to your FW) Other then that, you can use the same user names and passwords to access network resources.

So you need to find out of your pix 501 has a VPN package.

* Provides remote access VPN concentrator services for up to 10 remote software or hardware-based VPN clients
