Pix Question

have a PIX 501 that creates a VPN tunnel direct to our home site. right now we have another company that rents space from us and wants to use our DSL line (our needs are low when the renters are there and we are talking 1-2 pcs max.) my question is can you create a second VPN tunnel to the renters site without breaking our VPN. (my plan is to VLAN a switch to keep their network seperate.) is this possible or is there maybe another way that I am not thinking about. thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are they needing a tunnel to a remote site? or just simple internet access? The only reason you need a tunnel is for encrypted communication accross the public dsl line. THe VLAN would be the way to go. they wont see each other on the switch… if needed create access lists to better restrict them. The 501 does support more than one tunnel so that is possible if you need as well.

    Your pix 501 supports multiple VPN tunnels so yes this is a option for you. I'm not sure what type of license you have but also make sure you enough license for the hosts going through your firewall. It would be best to segment them to another network so you can apply policies on their traffic as well as implementing a VLAN.

    Dear Sir, Yes you can do the VLAN, but you need another static IP address.

    You could add a third Ethernet port to your PIX (if not already installed) and put them into a DMZ
