    We're looking at setting up a site to site for one of our small branches.

    The cable company offers fiber service @ 10 megabits and it's way cheaper than a point 2 point T1.

    Is a pix on each end really needed?

    I was thinking something like a 17xx series would provide sufficient firewall and ids for this without putting a pix on either end. While providing hardware encryption.


    I know from experience that pix's slow down alot with site 2 site tunnels.

    thoughts?
