I am hoping that someone here has had some experience with automating the configuration of the Cisco PIX 506/506e series. I work for an event planning company and we travel all around the world setting up networks onsite that will run for about a week and then break down and move to another location. Most of the time someone in tech travels to the show and configures the PIX for that venue. In the past we would give out a VPN hardware concentrator if there were no tech people going to the show. Most of the time we could set it to DHCP on the external interface and we would be fine. After using those devices for about a year and having to listen to all the complaints about them rebooting by themselves, we have decided to start deploying the PIX devices onsite to all events.
The problem that I have is giving out configuration instructions to people that have no technical skills. Is anyone aware of a way to automate the configuration either through a .bat file or some other way I have not thought of yet? All it would need to do is take input for the IP address, subnet, and gateway and then program that in to the PIX and then issue the following commands :
- ca zeroize rsa
- ca generate rsa key 1024
- ca save all
- clear crypto isakmp sa
- clear crypto ipsec sa
Thank you for any help or suggestions!!
