How to configure Cisco Pix 506E for remote access with AES 256 bit encryption

Here is how I configured a Cisco Pix 506E for remote access.  This is the runnig config, I changed the ip and other info for security reasons.

 Cisco

PIX Version 6.3(5)
interface ethernet0 auto
interface ethernet1 auto
nameif ethernet0 outside security0
nameif ethernet1 inside security100

enable password QveUAuiX encrypted

!— the telnet password
passwd QveUAui encrypted

!— Define the host name
hostname Wii

!— Allow packets from IPsec tunnel pass through without checking against conduits and access lists
sysopt connection permit-ipsec

!— Configure the transform set, use AES 256 bit encryption algorithm
crypto ipsec transform-set trmset1 esp-aes-256 esp-sha-hmac

!— Configure dynamic crypto map and add it to static crypto map
crypto dynamic-map map2 10 set transform-set trmset1
crypto map map1 10 ipsec-isakmp dynamic map2

!— Enable local authentication, prompt for user authentication
crypto map map1 client authentication LOCAL

!— Bind crypto map to outside interface (Ethernet 0)
crypto map map1 interface outside

isakmp enable outside
isakmp identity address
!— Define isakmp policy to be used while negotiatin the isakmp SA. Use AES 256 bit as encryption. The available AES options are AES, AES 192 and AES 256. AES 192 is unsupported by VPN client.
isakmp policy 10 authentication pre-share
isakmp policy 10 encryption aes-256
isakmp policy 10 hash sha
isakmp policy 10 group 2
isakmp policy 10 lifetime 86400

!— Define VPN group called nintendo and policy attributes downloaded to the Easy VPN client (remote client).
vpngroup nintendo address-pool Remote-dhcp-pool
vpngroup nintendo dns-server 10.10.11.10
vpngroup nintendo default-domain wiivil.com

!— Configure access list 101 to enable split tunnel for remote client. Removing this line will diable spilt tunnel, this is recommended to higher security.
Vpngroup Nintendo split-tunnel 101

vpngroup nintendo idle-time 1800
vpngroup nintendo password ********
!— Enable telnet in LAN interface (Ethernet 1).
telnet 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 inside
telnet timeout 5
ssh timeout 5
console timeout 0
dhcpd auto_config outside

!— define remote user Wii and set password to wiivil
username Wii password wiivil encrypted privilege 2

!— define remote user Zelda and set password to nintendo
username zelda password nintendo encrypted privilege 2
