Hello people,
I am going to a site tommorow that is using Cisco PIX506e firewall, i need to open a few ports which i can't imagine being too strenuous but i also have to establish a VPN tunnel back to my office so i can support it remotely. Having no experience of any Cisco equipment thus far in life is this a difficult procedure and are there any good reading documents to help get it configured??
Thanks in advance.

See the following for configuring the Cisco VPN client software to establish a remote access VPN tunnel to the PIX.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps2308/products_configuration_example09186a00801e71c0.shtml

See the following PDF for how to use the VPN Wizard in the PIX PDM to configure the PIX for remote access VPN use (under "Wizards" on the main page, click on "VPN Wizard" and then click "VPN Wizard Start" and it will walk you through the steps):

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/pix/pix63/pdm30/olh/PDF_Version_-_PDM_OLH/pdm304.pdf

As for opening ports, you can find documentation on that in the same PDF mentioned above.  On the main contents page of the above PDF, under "Main Tabs", click "Access Rules" and it will explain about access rules and how to add them.
