Remote VPN Tunnels with 2 pix 506

Unanswered Question

I have two 506 PIX and I am attempting to get a Site-to-site VPN tunnel working.

The main site has a static IP

remote site is DHCP

Now I have the site to site tunnel working with a static config at the main site. The problem I am running into is the remote site is dhcp and the DSL provider they are using changes IP's very week or so. When this happens I have to log into the main site PIX and change the peer IP and isakmp address.

Is there a way i can setup a site to site tunnel with the remote site having a dynamic IP so I do not need to change the config of the PIX every time their IP changes?

After reading it I beleive I need to upgrade my main pix to 7.0 code. it is still running 6.3


Because I am running 506e I just read where you cannot update to 7. On the older PIX you need to be 515 or higher.

This sucks so I am back to square one.

Quote from link bellow PIX 501,PIX 506E, and PIX 520 are not supported in 7.x or above codes, you cannot upgrade these models to version 7. You must either have a PIX515/515E,525,535 for code 7.x or above..

You can still acomplish Static to Dynamic L2L vpn with your current 6.3 codes.. unless you are looking for a specific feature in 7.x then you must upgrade 501 to its upgrade model asa5505.. but again you can do what you need with 6.x.
