Cisco Pix 501 inside another firewall - open access to remote employees
Posted on 2009-12-21
I need to allow network access to remote employees
I'm wondering whether to setup RDP access to specific IP addresses or setup a proper cisco client vpn.
My cisco 501 is quite old, about 6 years, but seems to work fine. Its inside an outer internet facing firewall which guests plug into to get internet access.
Internal company LAN network, including AD/DNS/DHCP
I know a cisco501 is a bit small for a company running 30 odd machines but it works great and I see no reason to replace it.
1. Is a Cisco vpn fairly easy to setup for a non-network expert ?
2. What command could I issue that only allows a certain client from the outer firewall ? Everything I see tells me that the inside firewall cannot tell where traffic came from, since its all natted to a local 192 address ??
Any help or guidance would be appreciated
