hi I'm looking at purchasing a Cisco VPN concentrator to terminate all of my site to site VPN's and Cisco client VPN's

i have 2 remote sites which have a cisco 501 which VPN's back to the 515e

I'm just using a static username/password for the Cisco client!!! that's why i want to move to the VPN Concentrator

my pix is connected directly to the cisco Router (Outside) and then to the internal LAN, I have 1 DMZ connection which is already being used (mailsweeper)

what's the best network design for installing this concentrator, where should it be placed within the network?

regards

If this is the only concern you have to, you may consider deploying a RADIUS server in your environment.

If there are other reasons, reliability, volume etc., you may go ahead with Concentrator. You can connect in the same place ase your PIX is, i.e. between your Outside router and Internal Network.


You can also connect the LAN side of Concentrator to your DMZ, but would require setting up rules to allow traffic from DMZ to Inside Network through PIX. It will be more secure if you require such setup.
