I've been given a task to setup a VPN for our remote users. All i need is a process how vpn works i.e what i need and where i need it (i.e physical location of each component). May be different options available to me
We have got a cisco pix 501, which i believe allow you to setup VPN connections.
I would like to know
What do i need to do on cisco pix, how the users would be authenticated, do i need a VPN server or does pix act as a server. Do i need a certificate? i would like users to use their normal username and password to connect to work LAN.
Once i know how VPN works then i can get down to start configuring the pix or servers.. I just want to know that if i go with option then i need this and this and if i go with this option then i need this and that. and how these components would be connected.
Point me to any good websites which has diagrams and then step on how to configure each bit?
