PIX 506e VPN with Internet Access

Ah, the age old question...

I currently have PPTP VPN access up and running on a PIX 506e and users can get to all the LAN resources.  They also need to be able to access internet resources while using the VPN connection.  I would really like the users to  continue using the MS VPN client so I don't have to roll out the Cicso VPN client.  I have a seperate Pix 506e that is our internet GW for our LAN.  Is there any way to route VPN users to the other GW 506 so they can have internet access?  Any help is appreciated.

    Accepted Solution

    The users already do have Internet Connection right? That is how they connect to the PPTP VPN. Then is there any reason for having this? The speed is going to be the slowest link anyways. I mean, if the user connects using 64K to your VPN PIX and you have 5Mbps connection out through GwPIX, still users get only 64Kbps encrypted bandwidth.

    Bascially the easiest way to push them there would be layer 3 switching but i do not know if you have that in your network.

    However you can imply enable split tunneling and they can use thier existing interenet connection which they are using to launch the PPTP session over.
