Can I configure a PIX (515), as PPTP client to establish a tunnel with non-Cisco PPTP server ? Can my PIX initiate this type of connection ?
Today, I use a PC with PPTP client to establish this and I want replace this with a PIX and I don´t want depends of a PC.
Thank you very much.
As far as I know, pix 515E cannot function as any client, only as server, e.g it cannot be a vpn client. Only 501 and 506 can be clients. You can find more info in the command reference guide, under vpnclient command
It should also apply to the PPTP
I was wondring if it has become available with any newer firmware. I am trying to connect office network to a cloud provider network via PPTP. Any advice anyone?
The Cisco PIX firewall cannot act as a PPTP client, only PC/laptops in general can act as a PPTP client. The Cisco PIX can act as a PPTP Server though, if running on version 7.x and later.

You might wanna explore other solutions. SuSEfirewall2 (software based firewall) supports PPTP client configuration http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/howto-suse-100.phtml
