3 Site VPN advice

Hi,

Just a bit of advice, I have 3 offices (1 HQ + 2 remote) which I want to connect together across a site to site VPN.

HQ office will host a small database and the other 2 remote offices will require a secure access to the database across a VPN.

I was planning to use the below scenario;

HQ – Cisco PIX 506e + Cisco 1700 series

Remote Office x 2 Cisco PIX 506e + Cisco 1700 series

Site to Site VPN

I suspect the above scenario is okay, but could I get away with just using the PIXs or would it be better to stop with the full scenario?

Thanks

you can get a 1700 series with vpn ios
this will not be as good as a pix,
but will be cheaper

Im not sure what the bandwidth requirements are but for the above scanario two 501's should be fine for the remote offices.  The 1700 would be a good central vpn device.

just thought i would add that you may need to use RDP via the VPN if the database transfer speed is not desirable.

Since you don't have the equipment yet, if your looking for better alternatives, you might want to look at Juniper NetScreens.

but your config above would work.

we use 501's all round  - at remote offices and HQ.

works a charm if your demand is not excessive
