We have a health care client who is looking into a VPN solution.  They
need to allow up to 500 different users to come in over a VPN to run a
web application, though will probably never have more than 50 concurrent
connections.  They only have about 30 users at the main office who get
out to the internet, etc.  We were considering recommending a PIX 501 to
secure the connection and a VPN 3005 concentrator to terminate the VPN
connections.  I would prefer to put in a PIX 515 so we could put the
concentrator in a DMZ, but they are very price sensitive and they don't
really need a 515 at all.  My question is, is it ok (being that they are
healthcare) to simply put the concentrator behind the PIX 501 and just
forward the VPN traffic in to it?  Any insight would be appreciated.
how about forgetting about Cisco, get an OLD PC (<200$), spend another 200$ on a REAL linux admin and have the job done in half an hour ?

There are plenty of available FREE VPN solutions (openswan / vtun / a bunch of other solutions) and none is too hard to install.
