IPSec Passthru a Pix

My Office recently purchased a Pix 501 firewall.

We administer 8 different Pix 501 Firewalls at remote sites. I have installed pix version 6.3(1) and PDM 3.0(1). I need to be able to vpn to these remote site to assist with server maintenance ect...

I enabled the Fix-up esp-ike and I am able to negotiate a vpn tunnel to all the sites. But I am not able to pass traffic thru the tunnel. I have read several other conversations that are similar to my problem but am not sure what to do.

Do I need to use the command isakmp nat-traversal on my firewall or the remote firewalls?

Is there an accesslist that I have to put in to my firewall, and If so What is it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

Re: IPSec Passthru a Pix

Is your site using NAT? If so, you will want isakmp nat-traversal enabled on the remote PIXen
