Sonicwall VPN through a PIX 501

I have searched every answer here and everything that I can find a Cisco. I even bought a Command Reference book but I am still at a loss.
I have a client inside my network that need to VPN to an outside server. I seem to be able to connect to the server and authenticate but I am not drawing a valid IP address. Hence I cannot connect to anything on the other network. This workstation works fine when I put it outside of the 501.
I have tried a static translation to the workstation. I have even tried allowing any IP inbound in the access list hoping just to prove to myself that I just don't have the right ports open.
Everything I read says that 6.3(3) supports IPSEC passthrough but I can't find an example that I can follow...even on the Cisco site. Can somebody...anybody tell me where to find documentation on how to set this up.

You have two optoins.
1. Setup 1-to-1 static nat for that workstation to have a public IP all to itself
2. Enable isakmp nat-transparency:
