PIX501 to VPN3005 connection

Are there any good documents on the best way to setup a site-site VPN connection between and a PIX501 and VPN3005.

I have a small site where I will need to connect about 3 users to a pix501 and create a VPN tunnel back to our HQ(vpn3005).

I see a few options for doing this but I am looking for the best scenerio. I do want the pix501 to initiate the tunnel.

All the good documents on the VPN3000 are at

One thing you will not find mentioned is how you will accesst the 501 from HQ. In a nut shell you need to build a second tunnel to the outside interface of the 501. On the PIX your ACL to define VPN traffic will have two lines one for the HQ LAN to the Remote site LAN and one for the HQ LAN to the outside interface ot the PIX. On the VPN3000 you make a network list that says the same thing. This will essentially build two tunnels between the devices. Oh and don't forget to all the appropriate "telnet <> outside" command so the PIX will allow the connection on the outside interface.

Thanks for the post back.

I am also experimenting with using the Easy VPN but can't seem to get it to work. On my concentrator I get a message saying

51087 11/25/2002 14:09:11.340 SEV=5 IKE/0 RPT=611

All IKE SA proposals found unacceptable!

My PIX501 doesn't have 3des enabled and I don't plan on using it. Is there something I am missing here?

I have made sure that all my group and user info is correct.
