    Hi

    I'm new to this forum and networking but I hope someone can help me. I have two routers one cisco PIX 501, for my work-VPN connection and a second Dlink624 which is my own. My firm has strict rules regarding opening ports (for gaming and such) hence I bought the D-link. How do I set this up at home. Can I Pass a VPN-tunnel throug my D-link router to the Cisco PIX? Or is it possible to put a swich or a Hub infront of both routers?

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

    well if you put a router infront of the work router, it would be pointless, because you would be doing what your firm does not want to do, and there would be just as much to configure.

    just set up your vpn on the ports that your firm already has open, if not ask them to open up one port for you, then have your home router forward the port off of your work port to your home pc
