It is configured for IP:
On remote 501 I have:

isakmp enable outside
isakmp key ********* address 515-IP netmask
isakmp identity address
isakmp policy 10 authentication pre-share

On 515:
isakmp key ******** address netmask no-xauth no-config-mode
isakmp identity address
isakmp policy 10 authentication pre-share

The IP has not be changed, just we had a power failure on remote site (501)
and then even we rebotted PIX a couple of times or ping from a worksatation
didnt bring the VPN back up (Internet was up).
Any idea?
