By Edge I assume you mean the box connected ot the internet.
I would ideally prefer a router as the edge to the internet. This because a internet connection can be terminated on PIX only on a ethernet media, while a router provides a wider choice of physical media that can be used (serial, FR, ATM etc).
Also a router provides a wider option for the IGP and BGP that can be run in the edge incase you need to in the future.
Considering the above, a router provides better scale than a PIX
If you are sure, that you are only going to use Ethernet (both on inside and outside) and simple routing protocols without a lot of churn, PIX would do just fine.
OK, thanks for all of the input. I think I am going to put the 2621 at the edge and allow it to terminate my IPSEC tunnels for both site-to-site as well as remote users. Now, I've never done it before, but can the 2621 terminate Cisco VPN Clients or do I need to pass port 500 down to the PIX to handle that one? What I am seeing in my current setup is an extra 20-40 milliseconds of latency added on when I connect via Cisco VPN Client. Now, just going from hotel or whatever to my inside network isn't that bad. But, if I come into the pix and then go right back out a site-to-site vpn tunnel to somewhere else, I see an increase of around 20-40 milliseconds. Now, to me, that is crap. What do you think?
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
