PIX Restricted vs Unrestricted license

I am thinking about implementing a PIX 515 firewall for the first time and have questions about the Restricted vs. Unrestricted license. In reading rhe tech notes it appears I am limited only to the number of interfaces, the amount of RAM , and failover capabilities.

What I am most concerned with though is with a restricted license how many connections am I limited to? I have looked for a Web page with this info and I cannot seem to find one on the Cisco site. I there is a link you can point me to with this info that would be great as well.

Thanks

Re: PIX Restricted vs Unrestricted license

Hey Scott -

From the data sheet:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_data_sheet09186a0080091b15.html

the performance summary indicates:

Performance Summary

Cleartext throughput: 188 Mbps

Concurrent connections: 130,000

which applies to both the Restricted and Unresticted licenses for the pix.

Also included with the UR pix is a VPN or VPN+ accelerator card.

Hope this helps,

peter
