I am in the process of setting up an IPSec VPN between two PIX 501s. In the lab I have made the VPN work.
I have several questions which I need answers to. I do not need to know specifics at this time, just generalities with supporting links would be helpful. (50 points per question)
Can the remote site which is using dynamic DSL be configured to connect to the home site which is using static IP? I know it can be done if the home site is a Cisco concentrator, but will it work if the home site is a Cisco PIX 501?
Can the vpn tunnel be made to activate automatically without the requirement for interesting traffic to be sent?
If question 2 is true can the tunnel be made to never time out?
Once the tunnel is up, is the dhcprelay command required for the user pc at the remote site to request an IP address from a dhcp server at the home site?
As a general rule does an IPSec vpn allow ALL traffic to pass through in both directions as long as an ACL allows it?
