We have several clients using Pix 501 devices.  What is the limit for active VPN connections on these devices?  Is this determined by the IKE peers limit?  And if so, can extra licenses be purchased and installed?  I have found only conflicting information online, and Cisco will not even answer questions about such an "ancient" device.  :)
Although the IKE peer limit on all of these devices is 10, we have been able to have more than 10 IKE tunnel connections active.  Please explain Cisco's use of terminology and licensing.
Thank you!
