hi there

Here is a detailed document on how to configure a PIX for IPSec tunnel to another PIX and also allow a VPN client to hit it.
Importnant note - you will see this line at the top of the page:

The VPN Client can access the LAN behind PIX 1 but not the LAN behind PIX 2. The PIX does not redirect traffic

As a PIX is unable to route traffic back out an interface it originated from, it means that the vpn client will only be able to see traffic behind the PIX to which its connecting.  Ways around this are to deploy a concentrator at a hub site to which all pix tunnels and vpn clients connect, or to have a vpn profile for each pix on your vpn client


hope this helps
