HQ is opening remote office-Put PFSense at hq or remote?
HQ has 15 users, remote office will have 5 users. Plan to have vpn between them.
HQ has T1, remote has SDSL running at 1.5/1.5
Right now HQ is running a with a crappy old sonicwall. HQ has a Pix 506e that was sitting in the backroom. (it works)
MY Q is should I put PFsense in the HQ or the remote?

What would the pfSense do?
I kind of dont understand what the purpose is of having the pfSense only on one site.
You still need a device on both sides of your VPN tunnel.
And you still need a firewall in HQ and the site.
Why not install pfSense in both places?

If you change both places to pfsense, you haven´t a vpn Problem :D
the company would like me to use the unused pix 506e at one of the locations.
I guess I could suggest selling that pix and put pfsense at both locations.
Initially I wanted to use the pix at one of the locations.

If you don't have a specific reason for using a PIX except for "it's there" then I would always tend to use the same on both ends.
Simplifies setup and maintenance enormously!
Thanks for the input.
Time to sell the pix
