How do I securely setup PIX 501 site to site VPN for client network management

Hello Experts,

I have a PIX 501 at my office.  The clients I do network managment for have PIX 501's as their edge device.

I would like to setup permanent site to site VPNs with them but I would like to do the following:

Allow - All traffic originating from my subnet to the client networks
Deny - All traffic originating from client subnets to other client subnets

Basically I do not want to be a Hub allowing spoke to spoke communications.

Can this be done easily?

Please provide detailed pix configuration commands to make this happen.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Rajesh,  I've setup the peer to peer tunnel before.  I want to setup peer to peer tunnels from my PIX to multiple client PIXes and ensure that the client networks cannot talk to each other.

Is there anything special I need to do so far as access-lists?


No. you should be okay with the same set of configurations because your access-lists would be only opening up central to client1, central to client2 and so on. So client1 to client2 wouldn't be possible unless you configure it. Something like this;

Say your internal is 10.10.10.x, client1 is 10.10.20.x, client2 is 10.10.30.x

access-list 100 permit ip 10.10.10.x mask 10.10.20.x mask
access-list 100 permit ip 10.10.10.x mask 10.10.30.x mask

so client1 and client2 won't talk to each other.
