Got a working vpn with my pix. I want to add l2tp support aswell. Shouldnt be any problem mixing
ipsec with l2tp config, right?  Having 2 configs, one for the native cisco vpn client and one using ms/apples l2tp built-in client.

    What is the existing VPN used for? Is it for remote access or a fixed VPN between two locations?

    Generally you should not have any problems implementing both L2TP and IPSEC.

    Are you able to use PPTP?
    You might find implementing it easier and the PPTP and IPSEC configuration are completely separate so you can test the PPTP configuration without the posibility of disrupting your existing IPSEC VPN.

    The existing vpn is for ppl with the native cisco vpn client. But i want to allow persons to connect
    under a short time. The easiest way to do that is to let them use the builtin clients in the OS.

    I agree that using pptp with ipsec is muck easier. Maybe i should go for that config instead.
