PIX501 & VPN

Unanswered Question

I have a adsl router connected to a switch connected to a number of servers.

I want to use the PIX as a VPN server put paralel on the network and use only the inside interface.

When I connect to VPN on the internal network all works fine, when connected from the internet (the adsl router forwards all PPTP packets to the PIX) I do not get a connection. Any clues on the cause are welcome.

pix v6.x doesn't allow traffic traverse in/out the a single interface. in other words, pix has to forward a packet from one interface to another interface. thus the scenario is not feasible.

i guess the pix should be deployed between the adsl router and the lan instead.
