Moving Users to a remote location

b_lick used Ask the Experts™
Hey There,

We are moving 6 users to a new location about 1 Km down the road. They will need to tie into our network here for access to the server.

We currently have a CISCO PIX606e that supports VPN connectivity, but no internet connection when connected to the VPN.

What is my best option for having these 6 users seemlessly intergrate with our network?

Have a 506e, or other VPN device at both locations.  At least one location with a static IP, and create a pptp vpn between the two devices.  Two different subnets, 1 at each location with access-lists for each to see the other.  
The 506e can serve DHCP to your client computers at the remote location, internet will still go out through ISP but internal would go out through VPN.  the remote office gateway would be the internal ip address for their 506e.  But i think you would have to buy a cheap ASA now since PIX's are no longer made.


Sounds easy enough.
My next concern is that I want to be using this network for data and for voice. We use an AVAYA IP Office phone system. Do you think I will be needing to have a dedicated Point to Point T1 Line installed? or just high speed internet on both ends?
