Linksys VPN Router to 525 PIX

I want to create a 128 3DES tunnel to my PIX at work. The manual says that it is possible to connect to Cisco PIX Firewalls which was the main reason I bought it.

Does anyone have any idea on how to setup the PIX to allow the connection in?

Re: Linksys VPN Router to 525 PIX

Hi Stuartj!

I have an answer! It seems that the Linksys VPN routers do not ship with a version of software that is truly compatible with the PIX (even though they clearly state so).

You need to email Linksys and ask them for a copy of the firmware known as BEFVP41_v1.40.1_code.bin or later. Once you upgrade to this, you will find that it is more receptive to the PIX VPN.

Just so you know, it will take a few messages back and forth with them since they do not offer phone support. But once you get this version, you will be much happier.
