PIX 501 VPN with VPN CLIENT 4.0.3 ISSUE!

Posted on 2004-09-20
Last Modified: 2013-11-16
After establishing VPN connection I CANNOT connect nor access private site of my LAN or ping my server behind the pix 501 device.  I can connect to the VPN and receive an IP address assigned from my vpn pool.  How can i get the local LAN or server remote vpn access to work from my dial-up connection? Is there something wrong with my pix config below?

Any help greatly appreciated, please see my current config below:

>ip address inside

You need to change your nat_0 acl:
From this:

>access-list inside_outbound_nat0_acl permit ip

to this:
access-list inside_outbound_nat0_acl permit ip

Also, make sure your home LAN is not 192.168.1.x ..

Thanks very much for your suggestion, but originaly i had it setup as you mentioned and i just recently changed from 5 to ->0 instead (access-list inside_outbound_nat0_acl permit ip Even then i would have the same issue. I can change it again and will post my test results in an hour.

Also check your split-tunnel acl:
access-list split permit ip any

should be
access-list split permit ip any

If you can ping everything you should be able to access everything. Now you may have a name resolution, permissions issue. What OS on your VPN client? What are you trying to access? Domain? Workgroup?
