How to Connect to Cisco Pix 501? (Noob needs commands)

I was wondering how I can connect to our cisco pix 501?  I know how to connect with hyperterminal, but I don't know how to do a (config terminal).

I need to add the following line to our router because our VPN users cannot access the internet when they are connected to our VPN

vpngroup buckstaffuser split-tunnel nonat

Will that work?

Thanks

You need to be in "enable" mode before you can do a "configure terminal" command.  Type "enable" at the ">" prompt, then enter the enable password.  The prompt will change to a "#" prompt...then you can issue the "configure terminal" command.  The prompt will then look like:

hostname(config)#

From that prompt you can issue the "vpngroup" command that you specified.  However, you'll need to have the ACL called "buckstaffuser" already defined.

Hope this helps...

Actually, you need the ACL called "nonat" defined. "buckstaffuser" is the VPN group name

pix>enable
Password:
pix#config t
pix(config)#vpngroup buckstaffuser split-tunnel nonat
pix(config)#exit
pix#write mem

I would not use the same ACL for nonat (nat 0) and for split-tunneling. They are two different concepts, two different processes and you may not get the results you expect if you do use the same one. Without seeing your complete config, it is difficult to say definitively...
