Could a cisco pix 501 - 515 be used for Lan-To-Lan VPN ?
Posted on 2005-05-09
I need to setup a VPN between 4 sites (Mainly for 3 of the sites to access ressources in the 4th one)
For now it's only Lan-to-Lan but i also need to think about direct connections from users at home (Later, and not so urgent).
The main site has 25 users, and the 3 others, 5 users each.
Each site has fast internet connection, possibly with fixed ip adresses if needed.
We have no administrators (And only one programmer, me), but i have heard that pix501 for the 3 small sites and pix515 for the main site could be good solutions.
But it seem that thoses hardwares they are mainly routers (unlike VPN 3000 series) and i need to known if i could use them like that (Is it possible, did it has big performance concequences, ...).
I put 500 points because the question is prety urgent, and what i search is more a "Do the choice for me, corresponding to my criteria" that a simple question.
