Trying to connect to VPN at home while using pix 501 as gateway

I am setting up a network at a customer site and installed a PIX 501.  I have actually done this for 3 customers now and for each customer i am unable to access any vpn network using my windows xp vpn client to my windows 2003 server at my home.  I can connect to this vpn at any other site but not through these three sites that i am using a PIX 501 as my gateway.  I know something needs to be opened up on the pix to allow this but do not know what.  Quick response is appreciated, thanks!

Try adding the command "fixup protocol pptp 1723" on the PIX 501.

As per stressedout2004 - you will need to add the fixup for pptp if you are using PAT on the PIX outbound.  Note - that although this fixup is only supported in later PIX OSs - I would advise you to upgrade the PIX to 6.3(5) also.  There are problems with that particular fixup in 6.3(3) - I am not sure about 6.3(4).

Third vote for the fixup. It should be all you need to do.
Nodisco is correct. pptp fixup is broken in 6.33, fixed in 6.34, but suggest just updating to latest 6.35

This fixup worked as in it allowed me the connection but i can not access anything on the remote network.

Is there any chance that the remote network is the same IP subnet as your local network?
