We have an ASA5510 and want to upgrade the software to version 8 to provide a compatible SSL web vpn client with Vista.
I want to get a Cisco Pix or appropriate cheap routing compatible device for testing. I have a Pix 501 but it only has 8MB flash and 16MB RAM. It needs 16MB flash and 64MB RAM to run a compatible version of Pix 8.0(2).
Can someone advise on what upgrades would be needed (if its possible to do) on this Pix 501, or what other router I should purchase? The only goal is to get the least expensive solution that can run software version 8 for routing rules and features compatibility testing before making changes to a live environment. I do not need the more advanced VPN features of the ASA on this device.
