This might be a simple answer, but should it be possible to manage a remote VPN peer over an IPSEC vpn tunnel? I have a pix on the remote side which I also manage. I would like to be able to ssh through the tunnel to the inside interface of the pix.
Yes you can, on your remote pix (in config mode) issue:
save with - wr m
Test the above by pinging the inside interface ip address of your remote pix, you should get a reply.
Now you can launch the pix pdm via the vpn tunnel or (if you have ssh configured) i.e. key generated etc then you can ssh to the inside ip address of your remote pix via the vpn tunnel
Hope this helps and please rate posts!!
