I might add though that at least with the ASA 5520 (the closest thing to
a PIX 515E unrestricted) you will it about $300 more than the PIX...and
you get OS 7 (with more stuff than is available on the PIX OS 7) and gig
copper interfaces everywhere.
To answer the original question, although I haven't tried it yet, I
believe the ASA units will do what you want.
Lastly, if you're going to go the ASA route, let the OS mature for at
least a nother general deployment release before you implement. The
most current version is just full of bugs and annoyances.
