VPN for Satelite Office - Netopia 3347 to Cisco PIX 515

Hi All,

I just replaced a Netscreen 5XP that had a working VPN Tunnel with a  new Netopia 3347-02 router.  The DSL Line is new and we got new static IP addresses.  I had a working VPN Tunnel from this smaller satellite office withthe Netscreen but I can't seem to make the Netopia work.  I have read the manuals from the Netopia site but there is no clear answer.  I have googled and searched EE to no avail.  I believe that I am missing something on the Cisco side, but I'm not sure what.  

So, if you were to set up a tunnel, what would the config look like?  I will post my config later tonight.

I found the fix.  There was a check box on the Netopia side, the IPSEC Details page, PFS Enable was not checked.  Once checked, it worked.

Is the netopia supposed to dial the cisco?  Also does the netopia handel GRE?

The VPN connection is bidirectional as far as I know.  Both sides have static IP's and there is an option on the Cisco that was set to Bidirectional for the old tunnel and another one that is still working to another location.

How can I tell if the Netopia handles GRE?

IPSEC Passthrough is disabled and I read that article.  It reflects an older version of the Netopia software.
