Help, please! This is my first PIX Firewall and VPN config...
I am setting up a VPN for a small company of 5 employees. They have a PIX 501 with vers 6.3(1), a 16-port switch, 3 servers(Windows 2000 and2003). One Windows 2000 server has the MS Exchange and Active directory setup and is the Domain Controller with DNS and WINS server setup. They are currently able to get mail through https...
I want to setup VPN access using the features from the PIX. Scenario:
Client(outside)---->PIX/VPN--->MS DC server--->Internal network
So I want the client at home to connect to the PIX, have the PIX do the inital auth, then go to the Windows DC and allow users auth and access to internal servers and desktop to do work.
My dilemma is:1> deciding how to configure the PIX to work with windows clients on the outside interface and which vpn client to use other than the CISCO VPN Client(which did not come with the software)
2> the proper config on the PIX to work as the end point or the through to the windows 2000 server with the active directory.
I have read other posts similar to this question, I have searched and read docs on cisco, I have googled, etc. Now I would appreciate human feedback/help.
