PIX 501's are great and can do almost all of the same things their big
brothers can do.  Though you are limited to only having 2 interfaces
(outside, inside) and no failover.  Also there are traffic limitation such
as only 10 or 50 outbound connections(so like 10/50 machines going out)
amount of IPSec peers.  But otherwise they run the same PIX OS.
Now I'm not studying for the CCIE Security so I don't know what exactly is
involved but I'm sure the 501 can do a large portion of practice labs for a
fraction of the cost.  Then you just buy some rack time to play with things
that it can't do such as failover and dmz type setup's.

Does anyone know if I can use PIX 501 for CCIE security lab at home, or do I
need to go with 506 or 515?



Thanks in advance.

Alex
