    Hi,
    I have a Pix 501 with 50 User License.
    There are 10 VPN Peers allowed.
    Users are dialing in using the Cisco VPN Client and Internet Dialup
    Connections with dynamic IP.
    After a couple of weeks the PIX does not allow any connections anymore and
    says, that the maximum number of VPN peers has been reached.
    I assume it has to do with the users not terminating their VPN connection
    properly and just terminating the Internet access.
    Is there a way to free those connections besides booting the pix?

    Are you using IPSec? If so then perhaps you should shorten the
    lifetime so that the PIX drops the connections itself.

    clear ipsec sa

    As I recall, there is also a variant way to clear a specific SA.

    Also, which PIX version are you using? 6.2(2) and previous had
    a bug in timing out xlates that could potentially lead to what
    you are seeing.
