I need help creating a VPN from a Pix to a 3000 Concentrator.  The Concentrator I don't think I should have any issues with, but with the Pix I have basically no knowledge.

Another company has installed one and for us to make the connection, however they don't have the know how to configure it so they've put it my hands.  At this point I only have SSH access to the Pix with logins.  I'm not Cisco Certified so many of the documentation/software I have no access to.  

Please help point me in a good direction or give me some commands to help to get this done.  Thanks

The quickest and easiest way I would tell you is to get https access and use the SDM.  If you can ssh you should be able to enable https access and then hit it that way.

Once in via web their is a vpn wizard, one for point to point tunnels and one for client access...

I understand what you're saying, but not how to do it.

I think I know if I type in
http 72.1.79.0 255.255.255.0 outside
that it will give me http allowed access from that subnet, but how do I do it for https?

Alright, is the PIX not local to you?  I would not open access to the firewall / pix from the outside.  I thought that you were on the inside trying to get access to the SDM from the inside of the network not the outside.

This link should give you what you need: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2284/products_configuration_example09186a00800949d2.shtml

can you get to these docs?

I'll assume your suggestion worked - the person that posted this question is no longer with the company, but he did get the VPN up and running.   Thank you!
