I just setup a new PIX 501 for a new cable modem line we got in our office. I created a VPN tunnel from my house to the PIX and I can ping the inside interface with no problems.

The inside interface is and the switch is What am I missing here?

    Accepted Solution

    Can you ping anything else over the VPN?

    What is the default gateway for the switch? It will need to be the PIX so that it can route traffic back down the VPN.
