Last Modified: 2012-05-05
   I have setup a VPN based network using Cisco 515E firewall with software based Cisco VPN clients. Now the problem is that the remote VPN user cannot access LAN where i am able to access his PC and connect successfully from my local area and can ping as well although the user a remote VPN can ping his gateway which is firewall. What i know it must be only addition of a line to Cisco 515E so the user may get access to LAN or required server, Please help me to solve this problem as i cannot find the coorect line for addtion. Following is my configuration in Cisco 515E

First are you sure you want this line in there
crypto dynamic-map Cash-Branch-softclient-dynmap 65534 set peer

next is a very common subnet used on most soho routers.  The client isn't on a network with that subnet ip range are they.  It may be a routing issue then.

the only other thing I could think of is if the client is behind a NAT device which is most of the time.  try this command out
isakmp nat-traversal 20

1 yes we need this line becuase we use software client.

2  the client is on and the mentioned Ip is of our Inside (LAN)

1) using the software client has nothing to do with having that line in there.  check out this page and scroll down to where it talks about crypto dynamic-map with set peer option

2) is the VPN IP, I"m talking about the IP of the client on the network they are VPNing from.

true, your IP pool is only one IP so you can't have multiple vpn connections at this time.

Oops, must have missed this one in the stack o' emails.

I actually would object to having this Q deleted.  I know the items I mentioned are part or parts of the problem.  If it is still not fixed, then followup information needs to be posted to continue troubleshooting.

I have setup many RA vpn connections before and have never needed to use the entry the asker is saying needs to be used.  Those are typically used in the L2L configs.  However that may or may not be causing the issue, I'm not sure.  Having only one IP in your pool IS definitely part of your problem for multiple VPN clients though.  And the subnets used may be part of the problem depending up on ALL subnets involved (again, possible routing issue).  Please let me know if you need any clarification, additional information, or have any follow up information.  Thanks
