1750 to 1750 vpn

I currently have a 1750 router sitting behind a PIX 506. I want to setup another 1750 router at a remote location, add a WIC-1ENET card to it and hookup a SDSL modem to that card.

I then want to create a vpn between the two routers. Is this possible?

A vendor has told me I will have to setup the vpn between the remote router and the PIX which he says will take a software upgrade. He says this is all quite complicated but he is willing to do it all for me. At a price......

I thought this seemed straight forward but now I am a little concerned.

Thanks in advance for any tips, hints, requirements or suggestions.

If you are ok with making small comprises on the security of your PIX firewall then you can cut the IPSEC traffic through to the inside router and terminate the VPN. I had a VPN very similar to this running about 18 months ago. We eventually closed the remote office so I do not have it up any more, other wise I would have posted some more detail.

I have no problem with that. What do I do? Create some kind of static route for the routers thru the PIX?

Set up some access list entries to allow host to host esp and host to host udp isakmp on your PIX's interfaces.
