Problem:
Two computers cannot connect at the same time from home using Cisco client to connect to a PIX 515e over a DSL having integrated router capabilities. When one user connects, all is good. As soon as the other user (computer) connects, it disconnects the first user. Beyond enabling NAT Traversal on the PIX, what has to be configured to allow two concurrent VPN clients? In reading multiple posts on these sort of questions, two things keep popping up - NAT Traversal and firmware of the home router itself (IPSec passthrough issues).

> NAT Traversal and firmware of the home router itself (IPSec passthrough issues).
It's primarily a limitation of the home routers. They typically only support one vpn tunnel at a time to the same endpoint.
You can usually connect two computers to two different endpoints if the home router supports it.
If you need more than one PC at a remote office to connect, suggest using a VPN-capable router and create a permanent VPN lan-lan tunnel.

Thanks, that's an option that should work and one that will likely be used. I was hoping that maybe someone had a silver-bullet PIX config. Can anyone recommend a specific model router known to support a VPN tunnel with a PIX 515e in this configuration?

I have a Linksys WRv54G that works well with PIX, and so does Linksys RV0x series...
I can help get either of those up and working with you
