PIX501 and ipsec

I have a PIX501 at our coperate offices running a 3des vpn in it. When I try to establish a PIX to PIX tunnel between it and our manufactoring site the 501 crashes when I put the following statment in "crypto map mymap 11 ipsec-isakmp". Is there a limitation on the 501 for ipsec tunnels?

Re: PIX501 and ipsec

Does it crash or just stop passing traffic? If it stops passing traffic, then this is expected behaviour when you have an incomplete crypto map on the interface. The PIX thinks all traffic should be encrypted and stops passing any traffic thorugh it. To resolve this make sure you remove the command:

> crypto map mymap interface outside

from the PIX before you try and add the new crypto map.


Re: PIX501 and ipsec

with pix os 6.3, the limit is 10, but i don't think it should ever crash because of a command you enter. How does it crash?
