PIX 501 - Can't VPN Outbound

Posted on 2005-05-13

Last Modified: 2013-11-16
I have a PIX 501, PIX A we'll call it, (see config below) and am having problems with a VPN session to a  remote PIX 501 , PIX B we'll call this one, from a VPN client behind PIX A.

VPN client ------> PIX A ------> Internet ------> PIX B

From a third location I can independantly VPN to either PIX A or B via the Cisco VPN Client and access all resources on those networks..  On PIX A's network I can establish the VPN Session to PIX B, but I cannot access any resources on PIX B's network.

Here's my config for PIX A:  (I created this config based on Cisco examples and another working config I have access to.  I'm no very experienced with the PIX OS and would welcome any and all suggestions.)
