Remote access to pix

I'm new to the VPN world. My office would like to have all Remote users come into the corp network via the internet. We have a pix 520 running 6.0.2 with vpn -des enable. can i do this with software on the pixs or I need additional hardware to complete this project. please advice or point me to some Cisco Doc.

Re: Remote access to pix

You can do this with what you have. You might want to buy a 3DES icense for the PIX to be a little more secure.

You can either load the Cisco VPN Client onto each machine and use IPSec to VPN in, or if you don't want to load extra SW onto the PC's, you can just create a Dial-Up Networking connection and PPTP straight in.

Sample config for IPSEC and VPN Client is here (note this is the 3.x client in this config):
