Cisco VPN Client through PIX and routed network

    We currently have several networks interconnected using broadband and
    PIX 501's/506's, using site to site VPN's. We're looking at upgrading
    our service to an Ethernet over fiber scenario that would look like

    Site A (Main location) Local LAN:, Internet Connection Here
    Site B (Remote Site) Local LAN:
    Site C (Remote Site) Local LAN:
    Site D (Remote Site) Local LAN:

    The ethernet service will provide a fully meshed topology, allowing any
    site to reach any other site.

    Right now we use the Cisco VPN client for a few remote users. They
    connect into a PIX 506E located at Site A. Obvisouly, they can only
    access hosts located on the network. How can I enable the
    clients to reach hosts at Sites B,C and D once we have put the new
    service in place?

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

  2. You need a router on the inside interface of the PIX506 headend, inorder to
    "turn" the packets in and the via router, out again on the PIX headend.

    Ok this makes sense I think. So if I were to plug the 506E inside
    interface into a Catalyst 3548 with Layer 3 capability, that had routes
    for the 3 other networks, all would work fine?
