Hello experts,

I am trying to setup a point to point IPsec VPN between a PIX 525 and ASA 5520. I am not familiar with firewalls and have been studying up at this point. I am reaching out to gain knowledge from the experts, not simply the solution. I have installed GNS3 with a PIX version 7.2(4) and ASA 8.4(2) to assist me with practical application.

I've found some guidance online with the commands however, I more interested in knowing the reasoning behind the commands in order to completely understand the process in setting up the VPN and specifically what's different in the process between the PIX and ASA.

If anyone could guide me through the process with reasoning behind the steps, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Can you post the commands that you're wanting to better understand?

Just getting the VPN working should be straightforward.  Just run through the VPN wizard on both boxes and enter the appropriate information.

I apologize for leaving this question open, I was caught up in some personal issues...

What I was looking for was a generic explanation of each set of commands necessary when setting up a VPN between those two specific devices.

I was asked to try and explain step by step how to set one up however, wasn't given the equipment to test it out on. I also wasn't familiar with GNS3 and wasn't able to utilize Packet Tracer with the given devices. I also didn't have the wizard available to mess with.

Again, thanks for the response and sorry for leaving this open for so long.
