    For what it's worth, PIX OS v7 and the ASA v7 software are not the same
    animal, and the new PIX code still doesn't include RIPv2 support or split
    horizon. But after doing some digging, it looks like PIX OS v7 might solve
    Chris' problem after all:

    "Improved Support for Non-Split Tunneling Remote-Access VPN Environments:
    Enables remote-access VPN connections to be terminated on the outside
    interface of a Cisco PIX Security Appliance, allowing Internet-destined
    traffic from remote-access user VPN tunnels to leave through the same
    interface it arrived at (after firewall rules, URL filtering policies, and
    other security checks have been optionally applied)"

    But it's still going to cost them the money to upgrade their PIX to 128MB of
    RAM. That's going to be a lot cheaper than an ASA or VPN3K though.
