I have a PIX 515e running:
   PIX Version; 6.3(1)
   PDM Version: 3.0(0)148
I set it up to allow Microsoft VPN Client using PPTP.  Yes I know that the Cisco VPN Client is much better but I have some users who cannot get the Cisco client to work abroad and/or in some hotels.

Anyway, when I connect up using the MS VPN client I get connected but none of the traffect destend for the internal network gets there.  I had the same problem when I configured it for Cisco VPN Clients.  To fix that I had to fix my access-list rule.  I am guessing that I have the same problem now.  Looking at my configureation I see the following access-list rules which I think relate to the PPTP VPN:
   access-list vpn-access permit ip 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0 172.16.254.0 255.255.255.0
   access-list vpn-access permit ip any host 192.168.42.168
   access-list vpn-access permit ip any 172.16.254.0 255.255.255.0
These look ok to me.   VPN Clients assigned to the VPN pool 172.16.254 with traffect destened to the 192.168 net will be allowed.

Am I missing something else???

Thanks,
Louis
