Cisco VPN Client Through a Pix 501 to a Pix 520.  Connecting but not passing traffic?

Posted on 2004-11-18

I apologize in advance for only offering 30 points, but that's all I have in my account currently.  

I am using the Pix 501 behind my VPN client running Windows XP (all firewalls are turned off on the client).  The client connects fine but I cannot pass any traffic?  I've read numerous people with this same problem but have yet to find a solution.  I can connect fine WITHOUT the Pix 501 in place on my clients end.  Here's my simple pix config on my 501.  Anyone have any ideas?

    If possible, run the following command on both firewalls:


    That should let it through. I VPN through a 501 (at home) to a 515 (office) all the time with that command entered on both.
