It is easiest to use PPTP for windows VPN through a PIX. You need to open up the GRE protocol and TCP Port 1723 to allow Windows VPN through the PIX. Here is a link for this.

The Cisco VPN client is their VPN Client. I haven't tried using it with other VPN Servers besides Cisco.

The ACL command for allowing VPN through a PIX would be.

Access-list permit tcp eq 1723

Access-list permit gre

For the Company's Sale people who remotely connect to the PIX from out side

do they need to install Cisco VPN client software on to their machine?
