I've inherited a network with over 20 sites using PIX ver 6.X and 7.X as the border firewalls. All the VPN's between the sites are wide open and I need to lock them down. I have several months worth of syslogs. Can anyone recommend a tool that can report on the syslogs which ports are being used on which which VPN's? Preferably if they could analyze the syslog files.

For a onetime effort like this, I would recommend putting the files on a unix/linux box and using find/grep/awk.

While I agree there are a lot of options out there (I have looked) I was asking for recommendations. What I really am looking for it ones that are able to present results on the IP ranges in the VPN config.

what I need is a tool that can identify matching IP's in the subnets used by the VPN ACL (ie is part of the range) I have a large amount of subnets carved up in various sub classes so searching for say 192.168.1 would not cut it. The nearest I found was managenegine's offering but it did not seem to work with all subnets.

many thanks

I am posting this with a disclaimer that I am part of ManageEngine offerings.

I believe Firewall Analyzer has filters that supports IPRange/CIDR. Hence your requirement could be easily achievable with that.

would help you further.
