Hi, I am connecting to a PIX506 via windows VPN client. It connects and I get the 'registered on network' message however the recieved packets stalls at about 180 where other connections hit 1700 just connecting. I an connecting from a 192.168.123.x network to a 10.0.1.x network so no conflict there.

Q. Do I need to add a different address pool and an ACL for VPNn permit or NoNat?

I would suggest using a different IP subnet in the vpn address pool..

>ip local pool pptp-pool

change to
    ip local pool pptp-pool

Then you can add the no-nat access-list
   access-list no_nat permit

Apply the acl to the nat process using nat "0"
   nat (inside) 0 access-list no_nat

Thanks, that was the charm. I added IP after the permit and was passing packets! Thanks again... MM
