I can help you with that.


1. What kind of a VPN do you want to set up - Lan to Lan or Remote Access VPN clients?

2. What version of code you are running on the PIX 525 platform?

If could answer these two questions, I will be able to help give you the right links to configure VPN on the PIx.

That will not be a problem at all.

Here is link on how to do so..

The client version is little bit old in the config used above but the concept is the same.

You can use 3DES encryption instead of AES. Hopefully your PIX firewall has 3DES keys enabled.

Do sh version on the PIX and see what it says for 3DES encryption...:)

Let me know how this works out for you and if it helps, rate this post.
