We have a Cisco 501 PIX at a remote branch that is connected to the main office via VPN.  How do you configure the PIX so that I can telnet into it from the main office LAN.  The remote office is on a 192.168.2.0 subnet and the main office is on a 192.168.1.0 subnet.  They are at different physical locations with different public addresses. Do I have to allow the public address of the main office through on the PIX of the remote office or can it be done "internally" via the subnets.

Dont do it that way - use SSH its quicker easier and more secure

Allow SSH to PIX / ASA

First allow an IP address (Or network)

eg

ciscoasa(config)#ssh 217.22.146.123 255.255.255.255 outside

or

ciscoasa(config)#ssh 217.22.146.0 255.255.255.0 outside

or

ciscoasa(config)#ssh 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.255 inside

or

ciscoasa(config)#ssh 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 inside


Then (Only do this once) Create an RSA key on the Firewall

ciscoasa(config)# crypto key generate rsa
INFO: The name for the keys will be: <Default-RSA-Key>
Keypair generation process begin. Please wait...
Ciscoasa(config)#

Load an SSH Client on your PC e.g. PuTTy http://www.putty.nl/

Under "HostName (or IP Address) enter the Firewalls details
Tick SSH
Select Open
Note: You can give the connection and Save it for use again.

The first time is connects it will give you a warning about
trusting the other end accept it.

The username is pix
The Password is the Firewalls telent password

Note: The telnet password is set to cisco by default change it
using the passwd command

ciscoasa(config)#passwd newpassword.

Note if there is a problem with the keys, they might have corrupted. To repair


On PIX (v6)

ca zeroize rsa
ca gen rsa key 1024
