Re: PIX as PPTP client

As far as I know, pix 515E cannot function as any client, only as server, e.g it cannot be a vpn client. Only 501 and 506 can be clients. You can find more info in the command reference guide, under vpnclient command

It should also apply to the PPTP

Re: PIX as PPTP client

Hi Bro

The Cisco PIX firewall cannot act as a PPTP client, only PC/laptops in general can act as a PPTP client. The Cisco PIX can act as a PPTP Server though, if running on version 7.x and later. You could also refer to the comments made by Jennifer Halim (Cisco TAC engineer) in this URL https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/3207224

      

You might wanna explore other solutions. SuSEfirewall2 (software based firewall) supports PPTP client configuration http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/howto-suse-100.phtml
