Number of VPN clients behind PIX 501, restriction?

Is there a restriction of how many VPN clients can be behind a PIX 501. Is is just limited by the number of hosts (10, 50, Unlimited)?

Hello,

VPN clients behind a PIX. Will you use NAT-T (you have to). This will be limited only to the number of users (normal users) allowed through the PIX. So if you have a 10 or 50 user licence then the VPN connection will be counted into that list.

VPN Client connection through PIX is not IKE tunnels. They are normal UDP500 and UDP4500 peers.
