Dear all,

    I have a Cisco PIX 501 that I use in the home. I would like to
establish a persistent VPN tunnel back into our office.  Work gave me
was a Cisco VPN client for me to connect to their VPN gateway from my
laptop.  It works well after I converted it into a VPNC format file.

The example of the VPNC file is:

# cat work.conf
IPSec gateway 11.11.11.11
IPSec ID VTL-VPN
IPSec secret some-secret-word
IKE Authmode psk
Xauth username z-kay
#Xauth password
Domain internetservices
Target networks 10.206.0.0/16 10.205.0.0/16 10.0.3.0/16 10.0.3.0/16
10.0.2.0/16 10.0.1.0/16 10.0.4.0/16  10.254.0.0/16


Does anybody know how I could configure the PIX to establish the tunnel,
and route the appropriate networks over it?  Perhaps there is a good
guide (for dummies) out there?

King regards, z.

You'll need a static IP and assistance from your network admin. q.v.

Hi Gary,

    Thank-you for the URL.  I can manage the static address on the ADSL modem.
