Nabisco inclused 1DES by default in all their PIX boxen, and this
encryption protocol is about as secure as a tissue paper condom.  They
have an upgrade to 3DES that generally costs a significant amount of
money.  Unless you have this upgrade, you'll not be able to establish an
IPSEC tunnel with your m0n0wall as m0n0wall doesn't support such a joke
of an encryption protocol.
