How Many Ethernet Interfaces Needed?

Given I have a 2610 setup as a tunnel end point sitting in the DMZ with one ethernet interface connected to a PIX with a crypto map applied to that interface - Do I need a second ethernet interface to connect to the PIX to bring decrypted traffic inside?

Re: How Many Ethernet Interfaces Needed?

I don’t quite understand the explanation of your topology. It sounds like you have a 2610 connected to the DMZ interface of a PIX and to the Internet? Or are you decrypting the traffic on your DMZ, the outside of the PIX? Why don’t you just use the PIX as the end-point of the tunnel if the traffic ultimately needs to get inside anyway? I guess a little clearer understanding of the topology would help.
