Dynamic VPN tunnels using PIX

Is it possible to establish dynamic VPN tunnels with PIX, also does it support dynamic routing protocols.

thank you


Re: Dynamic VPN tunnels using PIX

1.- yes ... the PIX supports what is called Easy VPN server which allows you to create VPN tunnel with dynamic IP addresses. Basically the client been a remote user or another PIX configured as Easy VPn client need only to have a few intrcutions on its configuration. Once the client communicates with the PIX (easy VPN server ) the tunnel configuration will be pushed down to it.

2.- yes it does support RIP and OSPF

Hope it helps .. please rate it if it does !!!

Can PIX establish dynamic IPSEC tunnels based on RIP or OSPF routing info

Re: Dynamic VPN tunnels using PIX

Hi .. I am not too sure what do you mean by Dynamic IPSec tunnels. I meant that you can establish a VPN tunnel with an endpoint which does not have a static IP address .. this could be a remote user running Cisco VPN client or a PIX firewall .. In regards to OSPF please see below ...

The PIX Firewall can learn new routes based on the RIP routing broadcasts, but the PIX

Firewall does not have the functionality to propagate these learned routes to other devices.

With OSPF, the PIX Firewall learns new routes, and it can also propagate that information

to other devices.

I hope it helps ... please rate it if it does !!!
