I cannot surf the internet or see my home network while I am connected with Cisco VPN.  Is there a way around this?  

Thanks in advance.

This is normal behavior for VPN. This is a method of securing the VPN network from where you are connecting from. You need to talk to your administrator to allow split tunneling. They may not allow this for security purpose

I am the administrator.  LOL.  We had a company come in to install the Cisco PIX 501, because I do not have my Cisco certs(yet).  Is this something I can do by connecting to the router?

ON the pix add this:

access-list split permit ip localLANipaddress subnetmask vpnpoolipaddress subnetmask

Then add this to the vpngroup:

vpngroup YourVPNGroup split-tunnel split

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

is that the EXACT command I need to use on the PIX?  Just making sure.  I will give it a try.  

Thanks

Also on the client, there is an option to change to allow split tunneling. but this "can" be forced down from the pix. but might want to check.

yes it is but obviously you need to replace localLANipaddress with the network address on the PIX LAN and vpnpoolipaddress with the vpnpool you are using.

IE:

access-list split permit ip 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.10.0 255.255.255.0

you can find out what the vpnpool subnet used is by looking at the config under:

ip local pool

if you need more details you can post a sanatized version of your config, and i can give you more presice instructions.

would this command work?

vpngroup buckstaffuser split-tunnel nonat

yes this will work because most probably if you already have an access-list nonat it would be defining the correct set of ips which are the ones that define the vpn tunnel.
