USB Port on Pix 501

What exactly is the USB Port on a PIX 501 used for? We have a remote site that will be connecting to the internet via a satelite connection (Starband), we would like to setup a hardware VPN between that site and our main corporate site, however the satelite equipment connects directly to a PC's USB port. Can we use the USB port on the firewall to connect to the satelite equipment or are we going to have to get hardware that goes straight ethernet? If so can you reccomend a provider. Thank You

Re: USB Port on Pix 501

From what I've been told, the USB port on the Pix firewalls is not currently used for anything. It is very possible that they will find some use for it in the future.
