PIX 501/Clients no longer able to connect

I'm having a problem with establishing VPN connections now all of the sudden.

What would cause the PIX to not accept connections anymore.

Should I try a reboot?

A reboot will not hurt it if no one can connect....

making sure the interfaces are up and that everything else is connected correctly etc would be cool also.

Should I power cycle the PIX or is there a way to do this through the interface?

If its a 501, just remove the power lead; wait 5 seconds then stick it back in :)

Thanks for the quick response.  For some reason, cisco equipment scares the S#@% out of me.

I know the feeling sometimes. I have some good accreditations for Cisco but periodically I make some fundamental boo-boo's. I tend to stick to ISA server mainly. That said, there are not many areas on either products that will stump us all collectively.
