Pix 501 config

Pix 501 config

Pix 501 config

Hello. I am fairly new to configuring a Cisco Pix. I have a RVS4000 at the main site. That functions as a main site for all vpn connections. I already have another RVS4000 at a remote site connected back to main. I also have a few clients connected to main site via Quick VPN. I have a PIX 501 at my house that I'd like to use to connect my home network to the main site. I have tried a few configs from various websites (editing what other people used and tailored to my own) and had zero success. First thing, my internet connection (Cox Cable) is a dynamic ip address. Is that going to be a problem? Also, can anyone guide me through configuring my PIX to connect to main site? I don't need anything crazy. Pretty much wide open door as far as firewall control. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Pix 501 config

A dynamic IP will cause a problem if you want a 24/7 VPN (when the lease renews you might get a new IP).  If you don't need it 24/7, and you can initiate the session from the PIX at home then it shouldn't be a problem.  Or you can use something like dyndns.org (or is it .net?) to get the IP when the lease renews.

As for connecting to anohter - I've never used the pix to initiate a VPN, just to anchor, so I won't be any help.
