Capabilities of a Cisco 506E?

Dear Experts,

I would like to know if a Cisco 506E can do all of the following simultaneously (I have 4 useable public/global IP addresses to work with):

1. site-to-site VPN
2. client-to-site VPN using Cisco client
3. use one IP for a mail server that is running Exchange and OWA, i.e. static NAT allowing incoming 25 & 80 and insure that outgoing mail will use the same public IP as is the incoming (for Reverse DNS lookup issues).
4. use another, via NAT I assume, available public IP for Internet browsing by multiple users on the private side.

I currently have the site-to-site up and running, and have another PIX that is doing the NAT for mail and outgoing Internet Access, but would like to consolidate into just 1 box rather than two.

thanks in advance,

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes

Piece of cake for all of them simultaneously. How many internal users? Only one public server (mail/owa)?

Thanks lrmoore,

I'll be trying this tomorrow and will provide feedback ASAP if all goes well, actually regardless of how it goes.  

Yes, just one mail server with owa running on it.  Number of users at main site is 6 or 7, and at remote site that is up and running w/sitie-to-site VPN there are 2 users.

I'm beginning to believe that working at the command line, CLI, is cleaner than the PDM as when I've tried to do some things it just doesn't seem to work via the PDM.  Most likely my ignorance, but tomorrow I'm going to just use the CLI.

Good luck!
I also prefer the CLI. The PDM keeps getting better, but it is still not intuitive to do some things.
I do like the PDM VPN Wizard for both the VPN clients and the site-site VPN. Just remember to use a totally different IP subnet for your VPN clients than your local LAN, and for Pete's sake don't use 192.168.0.0/24 or 192.168.1.0/24 for anything.

Got the 506E working today with all services working properly.  Was really straight forward even though it didn't seem that things were going to work out at first until I realized that the ARP cache on the router was giving me misleading results.  i.e. ARP had the old PIX's interface MAC address for an IP address that was now being Nat-ted on the new PIX.  Once I cleared the ARP cache all changes on the pix became apparent as they should have.

Perhaps I got a strange router here but in the future I'll always check this out as it gave very misleading results...

Thanks for your help lrmoore...
