New to vpns etc... wanting to build a lab...what concentrator

I'm wanting to build a lab on the cheap that simulated what we have at work.

Hundreds of sonicwall tz series firewalls tunneling through a cisco concentrator for various services.

What is the cheapest I could get away with a concentrator. I will be purchasing a couple tz 170 and maybe a cheap sonicwall pro but i'm lost as to which would be the best to use as a concentrator.

Also, when you register a sonicwall do you HAVE to pay for it so you can enable all the vpn services or is that just for content filtering.

    I would look for an ASA 5505 you can get one on ebay for $300-400

    VPN Concentrators are end of sale and end of life, wouldn't be that good of an investment in my opinion.
