PIX to PIX and VPN Client Access Problem

I have a 2 site PIX 501 to PIX 501 network, that is also configured for vpn client access. The Site to Site works fine, so does the VPN client to PIX, but a user connected to the VPN client can not access the remote network. Example

Site 1
Internal IP: 1.1.1.1
VPN Client IP: 1.250.0.1

Site 2
Internal IP: 2.2.2.2
VPN Client IP: 2.251.0.1

2.251.0.1 to 1.1.1.1 does not work
1.250.0.1 to 2.2.2.2 does not work

I heard this was a bug with PIX 501 using 6.x IOS. Is it possible to get traffic to across VPN client to remote network, or is it a bug?

Thanks,
Tareef

That is correct, and they never will with PIX 501's and 6.x OS
It is a "feature" not a bug.

Thanks, that answers that. Do you know is the ASA 5505, or 5500 series removes this "Feature"?

Yes, the ASA 5500 series, as well as the PIX 7.x (only on 515 or bigger) does indeed resolve this issue.
