Background - Busily trying to teach myself all things PIX for the CSPFA Exam - Ive got no problem with intranet/extranet site to site VPN's, Ive got loads of working configs from Live PIX's to look at while Ive been learning. Howerver Ive got no configs for accepting connections from a cisco VPN software - and the book is mightily confusing to say the least.

So I want to put the config in my own pix so I can test the thing - however after a lot of swearing - ive removed everything from my config and Im back to square 1

What Im after is not just the lines to add to the config - I want to know what each line is doing (i.e. this applies the cryptomap and the name must be the same as xyx etc)

current config
