I am currently connecting two offices on the same Windows Domain with a VPN tunnel using two Linksys BEFSX41s and can successfully browse Network Neighborhood from either side. It looks very transparent from a user perspective. Each office connects to the internet via DSL with a static IP address. This is an all-Windows environment with XP Pro, Server 2003 and Exhange 2003 at the main office and XP Pro at the remote office.
I recently purchased a Cisco PIX 501, version 6.3(4), and would like to replace the BEFSX41 in my main office with the PIX 501 while maintaining that transparency. I don't want to give up my ability to browse Network Neighborhood.
I'm just starting the learn the PIX. Can someone please suggest a best practice for configuring the PIX 501 to achieve a seamless connection, including getting the NetBIOS broadcasts across the tunnel?
